EMPATHIC DIGNITY: A plea
EMPATHIC DIGNITY : A plea
by Francisco Gomes de Matos, a peace linguist from Recife, Brazil
When a person´s feeling we experience
and ourselves in the person´s shoes we place
that is a chance to show our sapience
when interacting humanizingly face to face
But is that psychosocioculturally enough?
In doing so, will we overcome discrimination?
will we cross areas that may be too rough?
Or will we need more than determination?
Yes, when our empathy we need to activate
we can do what is expected but also much more
Yes, if multidimensional DIGNITY we activate
Hurrah! Empathic dignity will come to the fore
