We’ve just posted our latest podcast and want to let you know about it. Our guest is Sheriff Al Lamberti, the man responsible for running the largest fully accredited sheriff’s department in the United States: Broward Sheriff’s Office. We’ve been trying to arrange this discussion for a long time and finally the sheriff’s busy schedule allowed him to talk with the Humanity Project. Of course, BSO is the major community partner of the Humanity Project. They help us to bring our programs to more folks who need them. But this half-hour chat with Sheriff Lamberti covers some very interesting ground.

As we move through our lives, we create ripples in the world around us. Good ripples or bad ripples, ripples that make us and others into something more or ripples that make us less somehow. In a real way, that’s what the Humanity Project’s philosophy of shared value is based upon — the notion that we’re inextricably connected to one another in countless ways throughout every day. When this group talks about using cooperation and social connection to solve problems, our idea reflects a deeper reality of human life. Our actions, as well as our thoughts and feelings that result in later actions, do affect other people in the real world. By creating an awareness within us about this connection with others, and caring that it is constructive rather than destructive, we improve our own lives — and improve society.

As we approach another July 4th, I was thinking about a phrase we once used for a 4th of July fundraiser, “freedom from bullying.” That’s what our schools need now, isn’t it? They must be free of bullying in an age of hurtful Facebook and Twitter pages, at a time when weapons are sometimes in the schools and too many teens decide the only way out is suicide. To the Humanity Project, the way to accomplish this goal is by making school bullying socially unacceptable.
