empathy


If to be feelingly alive to the sufferings of my fellow-creatures is to be a fanatic, I am one of the most incurable fanatics ever permitted to be at large.

~ William Wilberforce ~
British abolitionist and social reformer (1759-1833)

I had to read this one 3x and I believe that it means that we care deeply for human life and that is to feel alive.. right? If so, divine!!!

Beautiful photo!

Your posts these past few days show us how to accept suffering we cannot evade, whether our own or that of someone for whom we care. Thank you.
