”Kindness and compassion toward all living things is the mark of a civilized society.” — Cesar Chavez

Faith columnist, Bill Tinsley, tickled me with his recent column (“Are you listening? Really?,” The Daily News, Aug. 23). Apparently, his wife and mine share the same listening gene. People come up to them on the street and in airports and suddenly divulge their deepest life secrets and fears. We both attribute this to the ability to focus eyes, ears, mind and heart on the person in front of you.
