Calling all Cool Heroes

Robert Thurman, Buddhist scholar and author of Inner Revolution, speaks through the human mic at Occupy Wall Street on October 13, 2011:

Everyone here is an example of something I’ve been wishing for for many years. You are what I call “cool heroes.” By cool I mean nonviolent. Cool heroes are people who are forceful, intelligent, just, and insightful, who can speak up loudly and clearly, but without getting angry or indulging in hatred.

We need cool heroes today.
