Human Suffering – Do You Relate?

I’d like to think I relate to the suffering of my fellow man, but I’ve never lost a limb, lost a child to cancer, lived on the street, been overweight, been molested, been black or been screwed over in any way. How could I relate to someone else’s suffering? The correct response isn’t yes I relate, or I try to relate – it’s I could never relate. Until I’ve literally walked in another man’s shoes I don’t know sh$t. The best this fool can do is show compassion to his fellow man – all of them – bar none.
