Lack of empathy is ripping us apart

We have an empathy crisis in this country. Our fierce sense of independence and entitlement allows us to effectively shut off suffering for anyone but “our own.

” We ALL know tragedy, hurt, struggle; we have all, at one point or another, collapsed to our knees and screamed and sobbed at the same time for the sake of someone we cared about with all our heart.
