There is not much I can add to this except my thoughts that we all must connect and come to understand that if we want to survive as a species we must learn to show compassion for all beings. After watching the video consider trying this: The next time you feel “sorry” for someone, instead of being sympathetic try and empathize with them. Find a time that you felt the same and understand where they are and not how it can be fixed.
Empathy and sympathy are not just two different approaches to confronting the emotional challenges of others; they are diametrically opposite responses in many important ways. Sympathy places another’s problems at a distance from us, places us in a position of superiority, and “drives separation”, says the film’s narrator, Dr. Brené Brown. Empathy, on the other hand, requires that one internalize the feelings of another. That shared experience drives interpersonal connection, she says. “What makes things better is connection. – See more at: http://www.karmatube.org/videos.php?id=4646#sthash.PadjDzSC.dpuf

This world is a dewdrop world
Things pass, no, nothing lasts
A boy and a little girl
On a dewdrop
It’s a dewdrop world
He loves how she looks at him
She loves his shining skin
Hot sun burns away the pearls
Of the dewdrops
It’s a dewdrop world
A ring made of hard, cool stone
Tells her she’s not alone
They watch lazy smoke rings curl
On a dewdrop
That they can’t stop
Fading dewdrop world

ME AND FREDDIE AS… SIMS?
Every now and then something comes into my inbox which is beautiful and extraordinary. And completely unexpected.
Here is a video made by someone I have never met, from elements of an existing video game, depicting a true story.
It absolutely captured my heart. I asked her if she’d allow me to share it with my ‘readers’ and she’s kindly said yes.
So here, created by Mia from ‘Sims 3′ characters she created herself, is a film …
based on one of my favourite and lesser-known QUEEN tracks ….
“THE MILLIONAIRE WALTZ” –
Enjoy ! And if you’re tweeting [or Facebooking], and you enjoyed it, please spread the word – this lady deserves it !
