  • MOST PEOPLE DON'T FEEL SEEN,MOST PEOPLE DON'T FEEL KNOWN.
  • 00:18:28.096 --> 00:18:30.299
  • MOST PEOPLE DON'T FEEL KNOWN.AND A SMALL ACT OF KINDNESS
  • 00:18:30.299 --> 00:18:31.533
  • AND A SMALL ACT OF KINDNESSSAYS TO A HUMAN BEING: I SEE
  • 00:18:31.533 --> 00:18:32.267
  • SAYS TO A HUMAN BEING: I SEEYOU.

  • AND THEN, THE OTHER SIDE IS: ITIS NOT KINDNESS-- AND THIS IS
  • 00:18:41.410 --> 00:18:42.744
  • IS NOT KINDNESS-- AND THIS ISWHAT WE CONFUSE.
  • 00:18:42.744 --> 00:18:45.414
