Jon Stewart once said, "If we amplify everything, we hear nothing," which is probably more valid today than ever before. When we get swarmed by the endless news and information, it can feel challenging to take steps toward change.

When challenged, this week's stories remind us to look for the real "helpers" and see if we can glean inspiration from them. --Guri
