'Empathising' in November

This value is at the root of many other values. In being able to empathise with others, we are able to show compassion, tolerance etc …

Empathy is the quality that underlies love, caring, and compassion. When you empathise with people, you’re able to put yourself in their place and recognise them as human beings with feelings just like you. You notice when they’re sad or hurt, and you might offer your help - or simply say a kind word. Empathy is the foundation of the Golden Rule - “Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.” Although a capacity for empathy is innate, parents can help it flourish.                                                                                              Beliefnet.com

Please look at our assembly – there is lots to learn about Empathy and the film may make you see others in a different light…
