I am stepping out of suburban bliss, which has its benefits but also has its downfalls. If I understand your take on sympathy JRM, I have gotten to sympathise with many different people since meeting Redpepper. She thinks I'm not learning anything but I am. That doesn't mean I will abandon my core beliefs and not challenge others. Nor does it mean I will be friends with everyone. But it does mean that I am always aware that it is people I am talking to too and not just opinions without the same fundamental desires as myself....to be happy and care for people.
