After watching the news last week, Mr Six decided to throw his toy guns in the trash. After successfully convincing his younger brother, he wants to ask his friends to do the same. He put himself in the shoes of those innocent six year olds who lost their lives in Connecticut and is motivated to make change happen, based on his understanding. Empathy is necessary for caring behaviour.
”When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers - so many caring people in this world.”
