Can you feel it?
‘Empathy: the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.‘
You see, there is no them. There is only us.
“These are real lives, real children.”
“…if you speak with me with a different language that I know, then what you are saying will reach my mind. But if you speak the same language that I speak, then your speech will reach my heart.“
Between 2005 and 2015, the number of child refugees more than doubled, to 9 million.
What would you do to save those you love?
We are not so different as those who seek to divide us would wish.
When we fear the “otherness” of those who look different from us, who speak languages other than ours, who dress and worship in a different manner than is our custom, we become less human, I think.
Fear always leads to a bad place.
But that response is under our control, isn’t it?
