It's what we do with our time that's important. Are we TOO busy to take the time to care about another person? Yes, I believe that in today's world we are too busy to take the time to be a friend.
As I have grown older I have learned empathy thru books that I have read. Finding that I didn't have any. So now I try to look at each person tosee the war that each is experiencing.
