Having huge amounts of people wanting to be a part of helping to make the world be better, however each person can, will spread ripples of incalculable importance. Each single act of kindness adds light to the world. That’s the cool thing! Let’s have cruelty go back to being something that is no longer accepted! — And under that umbrella of caring for each other, let’s make sure no child/no person goes hungry -if the leaders of the world would only organize it better, with care, there’s no actual need for hunger. And have all the slavery, torture and genocide — of all beings, animal as well as human- be ended. Of course, there are so many organizations and so many people in the world who do want those things and are actively working towards them right now.

I had the pleasure to interview Jillie Simon. Jillie is an actor-singer-songwriter and producer, who also wrote and co-directed (and played the protagonist in) “Hungry”, a 23 minute short film that’s been in twenty seven film festivals to date and honored with nine awards, four of which were for Best Actress/Best Performance. She performs on stage and screen, and in the last year and a half has played roles in three independent feature films, four shorts, two web-series, one tv series and a play. She’s toured with two alternative rock bands throughout the U.S., Europe, Canada and the Middle East and has co-written songs that have aired on commercial and college radio and been in films, and one of which was Grammy-nominated.

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
