Remember that time you said “yes” to something without quite understanding why you said yes or even knowing what exactly you were saying yes to? But some part of you felt that you ought to do it and so you did.

I have just returned from an interesting experience in Washington. D.C.:  a panel discussion with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The event was sponsored by the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), a leading neo-conservative think tank responsible for much of the intellectual core and agenda of the Bush-Cheney administration. So why would I go to a place that co-engineered much of the thinking that led us into the disaster of the Iraq War and the financial crisis of 2008, costing us trillions of dollars, and causing massive waves of human suffering across cultures?

High School 2.0
Iowa BIG instructor/learning facilitator, Dennis Becker, works with a group of BIG students as they discuss and vet potential projects in the co-working space outside the Iowa BIG office.

As schools opened across North America over the last few weeks, one wonders how many saw what Trace Pickering witnessed at Cedar Rapids’ new Iowa BIG School in its first days: High school students pouring in the doors to eagerly engage in conversation with their teachers and peers about the year ahead.
