(Click the Play button below to watch video)

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. Andrea Nirenberg tells the story of Charlie Plumb, Navy jet pilot during Vietnam whose plane was hit. He parachuted to safety. Years later, he was approached by a man who said, "You're Plumb and you flew jet fighters from the Kitty Hawk before being shot down. I packed your parachute." That night Plumb couldn't sleep. He worried that at the base, he had ignored the parachute packer who held his fate in his hands. When Plumb became a public speaker, he urged his audience to think of others. He always asked, "Who packs your parachute?"
