“We Can Be Heroes” highlights stories from Nancy Thompson’s new book, Touching the Elephant, to show what characters from the world’s religious scriptures and everyday people have in common. Touching the Elephant explains how values such as truth, compassion, and humility are prized in all the world’s religions, and it shows readers why. “We Can Be Heroes” helps audiences understand why practicing these values feels so difficult but how doing so can transform our own lives and our communities
