Empathy Action


When my brother Mason is sad I play with him to make him happy.

Colten is in kindergarten, yet he is able to identify his brother’s feelings, to share those feelings – empathy – and to take action to help. Colten is a wonderful citizen of his family and will be a wonderful citizen in any community because his empathic awareness is already at play at five years of age. Colten is a changer.
