Author Molly Knight Raskin: The Remarkable Life of Danny Lewin, 9/11 Victim, and Co-Founder of Akamai Technologies

Most people don’t know that Danny Lewin was likely the first victim to be lost in the 9/11 attacks. By the same token, most people are unaware that Danny was also one of the people who turned the “World Wide Wait” into the speedy internet we know today, as co-founder of Akamai Technologies, a company that used algorithms to put the zip into the speed needed online.

Amazingly, this is only the tip of the iceberg in Danny’s remarkable, short life. Molly Knight Raskin, author of “No Better Time: The Brief, Remarkable Life of Danny Lewin, The Genius Who Transformed The Internet,” tells a compelling story of an amazing man who accomplished great things during his abbreviated life.

This is a biography that you will truly not want to miss.

Sacred Power- Author and Speaker Caroline Myss

Sacred Power- Author and Speaker Caroline Myss teaches us about our own Sacred Power and how to enhance our lives

When it comes to human consciousness, spirituality, and the science of medical intuition, there is no one more recognizable and respected than Caroline Myss. We talk about her new series on the Gaia network – Sacred Power: Mastering the Nature of Your Soul, and her live event at the GaiaSphere theater in Boulder, CO August 16-18.

Caroline explains how we all are intuitive, how we have to be careful about giving away our power to others, and how everything we do affects others. She also shares how to find trust, why we need to walk our talk, and how we have to tip the world towards compassion and empathy and not towards violence and evil by beating evil at its own game.

We talk about how this is the most pivotal time in history, how we can’t look to the past for answers, and how evil is so very addicting.

We Say #Never Again: Parkland Teachers

When I was offered the opportunity to talk with two of the teachers from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who had been on campus during the horrendous shooting on February 14th of this year, I jumped at the chance. There was so much to ask about. Not only what went through their heads at the time, but also what they saw in the kids that day, and in the days after.  Many of these kids came out of it with a mission and purpose, and the energy and determination to see it through.

Melissa Falkowski (journalism) and Eric Garner (broadcast) asked many of their students to write about that day, about how they felt, and what they wanted to accomplish. It’s now in book form, edited by Falkowski and Garner, and titled “WE SAY #NEVERAGAIN,”  Reporting by the Parkland Student Journalists.”

The day of the interview was the day after another mass shooting – this time in California at the Borderline Bar and Grill. You can imagine how raw Falkowski and Garner felt when we spoke. We talked about why they asked the students to write these essays, what the kids learned about journalism from the event and its aftermath, and how they see things in these kids that the rest of the world can’t begin to understand.

In December, the Parkland’s March For Our Lives activists were chosen as finalists for the 2018 TIME Magazine Person of the Year. Melissa Falkowski and Eric Garner give us a little insight into why. The book WE SAY #NEVER AGAIN will give you a lot more.
