Ernesto Sirolli: Want to help someone? Shut up and listen!

You owe it to yourself to watch the video, bellow. Ernesto Sirolli is just brilliant. He tells a terrific story about wanting to go to Africa to fight hunger and poverty by teaching the habitants how to grow tomatoes. His team feels really proud of themselves as they do all of the planting. The tomatoes finally start to take root and grow - and then a herd of hippos comes and eats all of them.
