"the willfully unimaginative see more monsters"

JK Rowling's commencement address at Harvard is making the rounds and with good reason. If you have not stopped to spend the twenty minutes viewing it, please mark this link and when time permits, do so.

My favorite quote from her talk:
"I think the willfully unimaginative see more monsters. They are often more afraid. What is more, those who choose not to empathize enable real monsters. For without ever committing a outright evil act ourselves, we collude with it through our own apathy."

It is well worth your time!
