We Need Stories and Empathy

I am sharing this again today because I believe the only way we make it through as a nation — and long term, the only way we survive as a species — is if we get better, much better, at listening to each other’s stories. Empathy and the willingness to consider the world through another’s eyes: that’s how we get through this. So, for the men reading my blog, this is something the women I know wrote to us. They are not the only ones who need our empathy. Latinx, LGBTQ+, Muslim, Black, and many others among our friends and neighbors really need us to hear them. But this is one place to begin listening, today.
