“Empathy is the greatest thing.”

December 3, 2010

A dear friend, my buddy from our days teaching side-by-side second grade homerooms, sent this link out today to her fellow teachers. She then sent me a private note to let me know that the video includes the story of a young girl who lost her father at an early age. The short documentary is just shy of ten minutes long, and it’s worth watching all the way through. I’ve watched it twice already.

As my friend said in her note, it carries “a message of collective hope and the goodness that can come from stirring up things that are painful.” Thank you, K, for your friendship and thoughtfulness. And for giving me the words to explain why this is such a moving piece.
