“Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence.”

—Lu Xun — Pen name of Zhou Shuren, 20th Century Chinese writer and essayist

Life From Above is a new 4-part PBS series where cameras in space tell stories of life on our planet from a brand-new perspective.

Our planet is constantly on the move —from individual animals to powerful weather systems.

In episode one — Moving Planet — I was fascinated to see how rotund hippo communities, in their movement to find the freshest vegetation, actually build networks of waterways to irrigate and transform areas that would have otherwise become barren wastelands on the African continent.


Where are you walking with others in your personal and professional communities with hope and optimism?

How can and will your collective efforts reward you with greener pastures where things bloom and blossom.
