Mair Alight's insight:

I so long for contributing to understanding among students, teachers and parents. I see so many models that can be accerssed: Nonviolent Communication, Radical Compassion, Challenge Day, Roots of Empathy...so many ways! I hope this student reaches out for support to make a difference in his school. "When the people lead, the leaders will follow." I Vision a world where anyone anywhere can access empathy 24-7-365. I mean the kind of empathy that deeply connects us human-to-human and invites strategies to attend to all needs.

One of our greatest human needs is to be 'seen' and 'heard'. What if the teacher had responded differently and taken this opportunity for an empathic classroom conversation to connect with this eloquent young man and her students?

Thus, we are left to wonder whether “walking a mile in someone else’s moccasins” will truly benefit one’s relationships and, if so, why these benefits might occur.
