But that's just cliché. No, the world would be a better place if we could just have a little empathy for each other. If people would learn to take another's perspective, to see the world through somebody else's eyes, life could be more enjoyable for everybody. Or maybe people should just learn a little common courtesy. You never know what's going on in the life of the person taking your order at a restaurant, ringing up your purchases at your local retailer, or driving in the car next to you. You just never know. Maybe she's had a rough day. A rough week, even. Maybe his wife is sick and his baby is cutting teeth, and he's not getting any sleep at night. Maybe she can't pay her electric bill. The world would be a much better place if we could just walk a mile in someone else's shoes…or even just a few steps.
