The handbook for humanitarians, completely revised and updated with 5 new stories "Stone Soup for the Worldis a blueprint for building a better world. Its heroes are legendary people and ordinary folks who, by conviction, imagination, innovation, persistence, frequently hard work, and not infrequently moral or physical courage, have lifted their neighbors and their communities. They challenge each of us to respond in kind." --Walter Cronkite, from the Introduction "The inspiring stories featured in this book are wonderful testaments to the ideals of good citizenship. Citizen service reflects one of the most basic convictions of our democracy: that we are all responsible for one another." --Former president Bill Clinton "Stone Soup for the Worldtells many inspiring stories and reinforces a favorite quote of mine, 'From now on in America any definition of a successful life must include service to others.'" --Former president George Bush "My father used to say that one person could make a difference and each of us should try. This book tells the stories of people who have made that difference, and they are an inspiration to us all." --Caroline Kennedy "Wonderful . . . Young and old alike will be inspired by the hundreds of ideas for how we can help our children, our schools, our communities, and our country to be the best we can be." --Retired General Colin Powell, Founding Chairman of America's Promise--The Alliance for Youth From the Trade Paperback edition.
