The New Age of Empathy


I’ve been rolling past videos on Facebook and Twitter for a while now, wondering why social media is so fascinated by puppies being saved from floods, babies hearing for the first time and grandmothers who have something sassy and wise to say about body acceptance. And, recently, I’ve come to realize what is going on. Although the internet is generally known as a cesspool of trolls and racism, it is also a way to connection to billions of people. We are entering a new age of empathy.

The lantern in our hands.
