Today’s world is filled with distress, poverty, hunger, and war. That is why it needs a revolution! To bring a change in this world, we need this strong bond of “empathy”, “love” and “enthusiasm”.

Empathy is not an all-encompassing term that describes every person’s reaction to every situation. Instead it is an overarching ‘parent’ with multiple children that each describe different parameters within that construct that define specific stimuli and responses.
