It's no secret that TED talks are generally phenomenal. So what made Sarah Kay's exceptional enough to inspire two standing ovations and to make my mom cry when I made her watch it? Well, it's kind of hard to express. And that's the point.The first ovation comes in response to her opening, from the beginning of the video to 3:37. It is stunning. The second comes after the point she makes starting at 14:35. If you don't have time for the entire talk, don't miss the beginning and end.
