A family in Finland has created a family crest that includes the empathy symbol! They shared that “the Latin ‘motto’ translates to ‘Through struggle (comes) true compassion.’ – The true compassion part is how you communicate empathy in Latin.”
Note: They used the Creative Commons license which we offer to everyone who would like to use the empathy symbol to promote empathy in our world, and to express an affirmation of the value of empathy.
Michael Bowen has written a book about his experience recovering from a car crash when he was a young man, in which he became paralyzed from the neck down. Amazingly, he gradually recovered, and then devoted his life to helping others with similar experiences, and with disabilities–even riding his bike cross country to visit spinal rehab centers. He wanted to use the empathy symbol on the cover of his book, because, as he says, “Since my accident some 37 years ago, my life has been a lesson in empathy!” As he says in the book’s conclusion, “With every patient we met, [we] offered love, compassion and empathy.”

There is room for one more. What would you add?
From Dawn M: Here is the bracelet I had made by my bracelet maker on Etsy. I wanted to incorporate the empathy symbol, the peace symbol, and the symbol from my church (Unitarian Universalist), as these are the symbols of my heart.
Todd D. sent in his new car sticker. He says, “The words are something I have had as a motto for many years. Kind of a “golden rule” for the modern age. I was thinking that this would spark a bit of a question of what the symbol was and get people talking without being too blatant about it. Mystery can breed curiosity.
Being crass is not my intention but I do want to make a statement.”
