Would We Treat Them Differently?

I saw on Facebook yesterday a video produced by Cleveland Clinic. Although its direct focus is the medical setting, the question it asks it one that goes far beyond that setting: If you could stand in someone else’s shoes – hear what they hear, see what they see, feel that they feel – would you treat them differently?

We often react to each other with no idea what the other is experiencing, what might be prompting their words, facial expressions, their actions. The film is an invitation to treat each other with more grace, more generosity, more compassion.
