Good Morning Campers,
When Rilian was bewitched, he did many strange things. He rode around silently in a suit of black armour. He lived underground, and he believed many strange things about the witch who kept him captive.
Even though much of his behaviour was strange, there was only one thing about him that made Jill, Eustace and Puddleglum dislike him: he lacked empathy. The black knight never felt bad when other people got hurt, and didn’t think of how horrible things were for the earthmen, or for the overlanders he planned to attack and enslave.
Empathy is a very important skill; to be empathetic is to understand and feel other people’s feelings with them, and it helps us to be kind, and to do the right thing. Did you show empathy today? Is there somebody in your life that you try to empathize with?
Talk about this and enjoy your day,
