One beautiful human makes all the difference in a cold world. I wish this were the headline piece, everywhere. We all need to relearn the gift of giving.


Very good Abbey, the last photo, totally correct!!


Jose Andres, you are the kind of person makes all the US presidents seem like ridiculous fawners and pretenders of what a human being should be.
I always wondered why the Marshall Plan seemed to be the last good thing that America did for the world.
Oh Mr. Andres, THANK YOU—you are the New Marshall plan—it lives, and you have showed the world and all of the lame and ineffective leaders how to be a leader----First, be a human being, and you have shown all the world leaders and reminded us all that caring about others means caring about yourself too, because no real human being could watch the suffering and do nothing about it. Maybe it’s the Hippocratic oath too in "First do no harm, " or maybe it’s just Yoda reminding us to commit to each other with, “Do or do not, there is no try.” Politicians may try, but real human beings ACT! Thank you!
