Empathy Without Borders: A conversation with Bernard Amadei
 How do you understand empathy?
Bernard Amadei: Empathy is not a pill thatís taken so you care about others; there are prerequisites. Weíre all born with it, but our educational system makes us forget it. Itís about creating a level of cultivation and culture that allows people to remember it. For us, once we start working in the developing world, we remember it--whether we sustain it is a different story.
