I'm sensitive—and glad of it!

Now, I'm not talking about the kind of sensitivity that spends time ruminating and impulsively reacting to what others say or don't say, do or don't do. That kind of sensitivity—who needs it?

The sensitivity I'm referring to is the kind that is keenly aware of the sufferings and anguish of others. True sensitivity cares about people, is concerned about injustice and inhumanity. It is compassionate and understanding when people are down and out. It makes one reach out to them, do something practical and constructive to help them. It leads one to play a more active role in healing what needs healing in our world today.
