Can you imagine what it would be like if you had to sleep in a cardboard box or go 30 hours without food? Some teenagers in Maryland did just that to see how it feels to be homeless. These students learned a lot about understanding and empathy that night.
Empathy means understanding about other people’s situations and their feelings and showing that you care.
Actress Meryl Streep once said that
The great gift of human beings is that we have the power of empathy.
