jared diamond

I highly recommend watching this. I haven't read Guns, Germs and Steel or Collapse yet but really want to now. While Brooke and I were watching this at one point, while Diamond is in Africa, visiting hospitalized children with malaria he breaks down crying... it was the most authentic show of emotion I've seen on screen ever. So moving to see such a brilliant man with such massive compassion. He has an amazing ability to communicate terrible possibilities for our world with a sense of hope and possibility within his message... I'd dare say, prophetic...
