Empathy Epiphany

goldfish-jump-to-another-bowlEmpathy. The ability to identify and understand the feelings of another. It’s a noun. And I had an epiphany, thanks to a video a reader of my son’s blog shared with my son who shared it on his blog and I am now sharing with you.

The video is part of a 2005 commencement address David Foster Wallace – one of my most favorite authors of all time – gave to the graduating class at Kenyon College. It is a mere 9 minutes and 22 seconds. It will probably be the best 10 minutes you spend all day.

Any epiphany? I’ll share my empathy epiphany in my next post.
