When we are at the receiving end of pain, then only it becomes real and
personal. Watching death and destruction from a distance has the disconnect.
The other factor that seems to play an important part is that most are so
self centered they do not think of others.

One thing we can do is to treat every one with kindness and consideration
and try to bring joy everywhere we go. Personally speaking, I try to say a
few words to every one I meet, such as when I go shopping.
