Salt Lake City, Utah – The scholar Karen Armstrong says that while religion should contribute to a sense of respect for other people, it's often seen as a stumbling block to building a global community. So when she received the prestigious TED prize, she decided to put the money towards a Charter for Compassion. The project brought together leaders from the world's faith traditions to create a vision that would transcend religion. Wednesday, Armstrong joins Doug to talk about how each of us can lead a more compassionate life.
