"My job is to make arms and legs"

We should be incredibly grateful for people like Alberto Cairo.

The video below is from TED and is titled 'Alberto Cairo: There are no scraps of men'. 

Alberto Cairo's clinics in Afghanistan used to close down during active fighting. Now, they stay open. At TEDxRC2 (the RC stands for Red Cross/Red Crescent), Cairo tells the powerful story of why -- and how he found humanity and dignity in the midst of war.

I wish there was a transcript of the talk that I could share as Alberto has some of the most powerful words entwined in his story.

The video is only 20 minutes long, but I think it is an amazing 20 minute experience.

Enjoy.
