We are trying to shift a culture, that's what we are doing here; we are shifting a culture that acknowledges the power, the necessity, of its citizens to feel their humanity and to validate those feelings of compassion, of kindness, of goodness. And I think that to a certain degree these days science is with us; because more and more of the research and so forth they are showing that this is essential to our society.
Can we be brave enough to acknowledge our inherent feelings; If we can have confidence to do that and see the power of it, the practicality of it, the necessity of it, then we can shift the culture where this kind of feeling and insight becomes more the norm.http://www.youtube.com/play...
