We pass by and interact with so many people every day. And while it’s easy to judge that homeless person begging for money, or that person that is taking too long in a lineup, we forget that they have a story too. If there is one thing that would make this world a better place, it’s empathy. If you could put yourself in that stranger’s shoes for even one moment, you may understand their story.
This commercial for a Cleveland hospital has one message, and that is that everyone matters. It is saying that every single human being deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, and that includes you. If you could stand in someone else’s shoes . . . hear what they hear. See what they see. Feel what they feel. Would you treat them differently?
And even though this ad is focused on hospitals, it truly is a message we could all use in every aspect of our lives.
