I think, Sherry, that "caring" is, for most of us, something we come
with--part of the essence of human nature (something of a generalization,
but mostly true I believe). For whatever reasons, most of us learn how to
NOT care, or to care in some situations and not in others. Some people
learn the not-care lesson very well; others, more fortunate, refuse to
learn the not-care lesson and insist on a more authentic way of being in
spite of the "instruction" provided by a larger society.
