In this short film, New York Times best-selling author Amy Krouse Rosenthal considers the big questions: what constitutes a meaningful life, who are we, what makes the world go round? Her answer is Kindness.

    The simplicity of kindness, humanity, and respect. "Jen" means "human-ness"; "zen" means meditation, Nina.

    Nina - you can look at a sample of the book on Amazon. Zen and Jen are entirely different concepts so there is nothing to be bothered about in the video.

    What inspired you about this video? I enjoyed this short and sweet video. I only had a minute before I needed to leave but really needed some inspiration today, well I found it! Thanks it is just what the doctor ordered. Kindness is contagious so with your help today I will be spreading it! Thanks:)

    I saw this video yesterday. Today in the bagel shop a man in front of me ordered his breakfast, lunch and a cup of coffee. He appreared to work in construction by the appearance of his boots. Unfortunately his credit card was declined for the $11.24. As he left the counter I paid for his food and kindly caught up to him before he left the store. I stated that I belive in random acts of kindness and handed him his order. For the love of mankind, Eric

    nice video, but really its Zen, not Jen.. which bothered me the whole time.

    simply beautiful

    YES! Less Cnn, more mozart (or other music) and more kindness. I focus a lot on the negative side of global issues all the time and sometimes I forget that there are other topics in life. Balance is key!
