Empathy

Okinawa 1996: Bobbie’s Okinawan co-worker, Yomisan, was in the Prakriti with her head on the desk. Bobbie walked up to her and placed her hand on Yomisan’s forehead, and noticed that she had a fever. She went to the store and bought her some medicine and orange juice, and Yomisan thanked her.

Virginia 1993: Bobbie didn’t feel well for almost a week. She had a fever, a headache, body aches, congestion, etc. She never felt so lonely her entire life. She then realized that loneliness was amplified when there was no one around while being sick.
