Thanks to Jose Hernandez from East Salinas, a piece of everyone of us was present for the launch of Lady Gaga's Born this Way Foundation last week in Harvard. So when I encountered this podcast about the event, featuring Oprah Winfrey, I had to listen.
This is how celebrity should be used: both women are trying to use their notoriety to promote worthy causes, and Gaga's cause is particularly noteworthy. Every person matters. Be kind to one another. It's not an anti-bullying message, she told Winfrey, because she also cares about the bullies. It's about caring for people. I hope this message of kindness spreads far and wide.
