Weighing Influence


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.

I look forward to discovering what I can do to help our fragile planet.
