It’s been way too long since my last post.

There was no time or brain space to blog.  The only important thing became being with a family member who was fighting the good fight against cancer.

Since my brother-in-law’s death, it has become even more clear to me how important empathy truly is to the spirit.  True suffering is the feeling of being alone.

Feeling alone is how children/teens feel when they have been belittled and demeaned and no one seems to care.  It’s a feeling they don’t have to have.  It’s grief for an irrational reason.

For anyone who has had this feeling of loss, I think you’ll agree that a little empathy goes a long way.

There are many ways to nurture empathy in children — just ask the Kid President (Robby Novak).  Kid President’s Guide to Being Awesome has 100 ideas on how to make the world a better place. If you’ve never checked out the Soul Pancake’s Kid President videos, they’re just the perfect thing to inspire empathy and action while making you and your kids have a laugh and a reason to dance.

Empathy is everything, especially when you’ve lost your reason to dance.
