On Empathy and Community
I’ve had a lot of feelings recently about the world. I know that sounds pretty big and pretty generic, but that’s the level I’ve been thinking about it on. I don’t have the answers to many of the tragic things happening in our world these days, but I do have some thoughts on what I think could help put the pieces back together.
I was traveling last week and these thoughts on empathy and community popped into my head. This recording is unedited, so sometimes the words escape me and sometimes I use the words incorrectly, but I think it gets across the basics of what I was thinking at the time.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on the topic and/or thoughts and constructive criticism about my monologue here. Sometimes I am too much with the world, and it weighs heavily on me. Writing is usually my preferred mode of conveying those emotions and thoughts, but in this case, a recording had to do. As vegans, it’s important that we think about how to create a more compassionate and empathetic world, where we do as little harm possible to the beings around us.
