I have the sweetest, coolest, most caring sister in the entire world. Not to mention she’s gorgeous – I mean, look at her:
All that being said: Kendall made me cry last weekend.
Here is what happened: Kendall works as an RN at the Cleveland Clinic and shared this video with me last weekend. The Clinic’s CEO showed this to employees at a staff meeting in February. The video, entitled “Empathy”, is a beautiful, but shocking reminder that everyone has a struggle, a heartbreak, a triumph, a burden, a reason to celebrate.
I was sobbing by the end of it – and a day hasn’t gone by since then that I haven’t thought about its message. So would I treat someone differently if I knew what they were going through? Yes, yes, a hundred times, yes!
So, thanks for sharing, Kendall – I’m glad you made me cry. That video is slowly making me a more emphatic person.
The video is below – and is definitely worth a view. Just be warned: if you have a heart, you will probably cry.
