Empathy

My conference last week was really unusual.  It was a science conference, but it was about equity and inclusion in my field of science.  During one of the sessions, the presenter showed this video about empathy.  I thought it was brilliant, and I’m sure that if you watch you’ll be able to easily identify the moment that made me want to share it on this blog.  I wish I could have required everyone in my life to watch it before talking to me after our daughter died, and I’m trying to internalize the message so that I will continue to respond empathetically when other people in my life are going through difficult times.
