I got a heart from Rizza recently. Our friend Alfie died in an accident recently and we were all upset about it. Rizza thought empathy sucks since one person feeling bad can make many people feel bad. I had to tell her empathy makes us strong. It helps unite us and helps us along life's difficult path. Empathy motivates us to do things. It works the other way too. Happiness spreads the same way sadness does. If something wonderful happens to one of us, many people feel happy. An old Buddhist saying goes that happiness never diminishes no matter how much you share. Empathy makes us strong. We need to remember that in good times and in bad.
