Inside Somebody Else's Skin


I received this wonderful quote from a very good friend today. Her attached note was, "This is the level of compassion I strive for when it comes to racism":

“Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else's skin. It's the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.”
