5:36 pm
- we had to think a little more seriously about saving money for the future and for the kids and for their college funds. we thought, "well this airbnb is actually a great way to pay those extra bills." - every bit of extra money helps these days. we have a retirement fund of our own and i take a draw on it. i don't want to take too much either because i don't know what life is going to bring to me. i get to keep 97% of my rental price. the extra income i get from airbnb has been a huge help.
5:37 pm
- airbnb has helped me so much financially especially starting my own business. san francisco is such an expensive place to live. the way people work and travel is changing. the guests are now able to stay longer, stay five days, enjoy another day in san francisco and spend more money in the neighborhood. my guests are able to extend their stay and spend more money on activities and restaurants. - the extra income that i get from airbnb has been a huge impact in my life. welcome back to the global citizen festival. >> we see children thriving instead of dying from

5:40 pm
i found a way to say thanks for the german people accept the syrian refugees here. i lived this situation before, sometimes i didn't find food for myself to eat. it was hard. it was really hard. but when i arrived to berlin, i started to find kind people. one woman, she said, i think you don't have food. so let me offer some food for you, i ate the dinner with her. she inspired me. so i found that when i help the homeless people, i help the german community indirectly. some people, they are surprised that a syrian refugee did something like this. we can live in peace without

5:57 pm
watching today happen, patty, i want to tell you, if you're watching, the dream is alive in central park here tonight on a saturday. and, you know, when you see, maybe, some certain political candidates, you see an uprising of racism, of homophobia, of sexism. of sexism, of bigotry, all these things, raising their ugly heads, ugly, moldy, rusty heads. it's a sign and it's a good sign, because that means that this is one last gasp. they know these are antiquated ideals that aren't going away, and i think that's why you're seeing this last rise. because these ideals are being
5:58 pm
held in a skeleton's hand and these antiquated ideals, there's no longer room for them in this modern world of communication, of acceptance, and understanding of others. so we can rise to the challenges and these are the challenges that will be if we're united, if we're together and we support organizations like this, if we look after gun control legislations in our own cities and towns, because look at you, look at you together. you have the power. we have the power. stay active, stay energized, use your voice, use your votes. and together we can use our power for good.
