Our pilot episode of Belonging in the USA has touched many hearts, uplifted many souls, and changed many lives. Michael D McCarty's story of perseverance is one of a kind, and we were honored to share it first. Michael joined us live in conversation about what he thought of the episode, his experience making the episode, and the reactions he received from people. Meet him, and in the comment section, ask him any lingering questions you might have after having screened the episode!
1) Belonging is something we're all searching for. You find it when you find your place and purpose and realize that you're here for something unique.
2) What can you do to make someone's life, or even a moment in someone's day, better? The smallest thing can have a profound effect on someone.
3) It's important to accept that everyone needs other people.
4) Michael's overwhelmed & touched reaction to seeing how he has made an impact on other people reminds us that we never know how we have made an impact on others, and if we strive to make the world a little bit better of a place each day, we might really change someone's life.
