Author Charlie Newton has been writing about cops for years. He writes fiction (police thrillers) and his books have done well. So one day he got an idea; Why not teach cops to write stories themselves, about their own lives? He started teaching a fiction course at the Chicago Police Department.
While working for the U.N., Patrick McGrann observed that people need more than jobs and stability - they also need to have fun. He talks with Dick about where he got the idea to teach children in refugee camps to make kites. Patrick says the kites lift kids' spirits - and give them a way to earn some money.
