Could a greater miracle take place than for us to lookthrough each other’s eyes for an instant?" Henry David ThoreauPeople tend to circle with those who share similar views and ideas, but what about those who don’t share the same values or who don’t believe in the same God? Can you still feel to their joy? Suffering? Experiences? That's Empathy.
We must take the first leap together, as ONE, to see beyond what defines us and to reach beyond where we come from to truly see others. Heartbreak, anger, loneliness; these are universal terms. And what about other living creatures, do they not feel pain and suffering?
What we are trying to say is that we must care about those around us. It shouldn't be just about OUR loved ones, OUR misfortunes and OUR pleasures. Globalizing empathy is a step towards a better society, developing care and understanding that cross geographical, social and species boundaries.
Can us caring lead others to care? And can this care be translated into actions? Actions like saving lives, spreading love, reaching out and giving a helping hand…
