      I recently finished listening to Daryl Davis's interview on Joe Rogan's podcast, all 2 hours and 40 minutes of it and I couldn't recommend it enough. This guy is seriously a saint. One of the most inspirational and engaging people I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. If we could all be even just a little more like Davis the world would be a much better place.

        Such a GREAT find! If you don’t get AOTD, I will be greatly disappointed!

        UPVOTE! I wish I could “up” this even more! I hope it wins AOTD. I’ve heard this story before, but it still gave me shivers in a few spots. As I was reading, I felt like the voice of the author was somehow from a different time or place. Sure enough, it was published in 2015. Makes perfect sense. Stellar!

        Slow news FTW!

      A MUST MUST read! This is SOOOO inspiring! Daryl Davis is a true Master. He is the embodiment of the cliche “We are all one” because he is choosing NOT to be exclusionary. That is so radical as to be mind blowing. I would invite all of us to aspire to emulate this shining example of Love in action - what would our world look like then? If we truly, deeply desire peace, then we must BE peace. And that includes all who truly upend you, for therein lies the biggest opportunities for change. What a way to start my day!!!

      What an amazing story! How one man could erase the kkk in the entire state of Maryland and has the hood and robe of the grand wizard in his closet. Incredible!
