A richer world

[C]aring is right at the heart of human existence. Sadness is about caring. And the mother of sadness is compassion.*
Dacher Keltner

I love that word treasure. What if we saw ourselves that way. As worthy of treasuring.**
Sam Radford

There’s a four minute video
Made by the Cleveland Clinic that invites us
to step behind the faces we may pass
in hospital corridors without a second thought.
With text appearing to tell us what they are going through,
Concluding with the question:
If you could stand in someone else’s shoes.
Hear what they hear.
Feel what they feel.
Would you treat them differently?

I thought you might like to take a look.
