Why Empathy?
In the first episode, we spoke about what Empathy is, and what this show is all about. In today's episode let’s take a deep dive into Why. Empathy holds the key – in understanding or feeling what another person is experiencing from within their frame of reference. It may or may not always be possible. If we wish to truly understand the world, we need to at least attempt, to understand the world through each other. If the global state of the world at this time of Pandemic is any indication, ALL our lives are interwoven, and we are dependent on each other. No matter WHO we are, our survival is dependent on the grace of people around us, the love of community around us, levels of privilege we have in our society in terms of access to resources and opportunities.  Each of us – are experiencing the world in our OWN unique ways. At a time when the world is more polarized than ever, it is imperative to imagine a world beyond our own lived experiences.
