So many people,

at home,

at work,

at play,

just want to be noticed.


They want simple acknowledgment for

their contribution,

their commitment,

their common humanity.


When we step out of ourselves,

our agenda,

our worry,

our problems,

to let someone know

we see them,

we value them,

we care;

we are doing

some of the most important work

we will ever do.
