As I broaden my education, I’ve started following @holidayphillips on Instagram. I’m especially touched by a recent post about anti-racism and empathy where she asks ‘if empathy is so key, are we also to empathise with racists?!’
As Holiday points out more beautifully and powerfully than I can, empathy is a powerful force for change.
Empathy is hard and it’s not for everyone. It can be transformative.
It’s not sympathy.
