A global outbreak has united the world in few months, every one is understanding how a person sitting in Italy or China, or Iran or Pakistan would be feeling while locked down at home with or without family. I have witnessed this kind of empathy for the first time in my 43 years of life. Personal messages from world leaders like UN head, Presidents, iconic players, are way too useful and uniting the world. The idea of oneness is in this chaotic time is the main driving force towards the solution of the problem. Information is readily available to everyone right now but this global unity will be a thing to remember for ages. World leaders can shape the future of the world by being more empathetic and responsible.

Hi Surayya. Thank you for sharing this. I'm curious to learn more about which experiences are universal and which are more specific to communities or regions of the world. Perhaps this distinction would help in understanding where we can come together and where we need to build empathy for experiences that are different from our own.
