This week, we listen to a story written by Tom Rivett-Carnac that tells the story of what happened when we all stopped. Tom wanted to prompt people to think about, "what if we used this moment in our lives and in history as an opportunity to jumpstart the rebirth of our planet when we go back to work and school?"
