I enjoyed this year's TIME 100, Featuring the most influential people in the world [May 14], especially the stories of everyday unsung heroes like U.S. Army Captain Timothy Gittins, Chinese blogger Zeng Jinyan and construction worker Wesley Autrey, who saved a man's life in the New York City subway. They prove you don't have to be a politician or a billionaire to do the right thing. In the end, simple acts of humanity and justice can change the world. I look forward to discovering what I can do to help our fragile planet.
