    It is part of how young children are introduced to empathy. Don't hit Johnny, how would you feel if someone hit you? Don't grab Susie's dolly, how would you feel if someone took your dolly away?

    And "what if it were you" is the foundation of the many culturally and religious versions of what we know as the golden rule.

    I think the diary has a good point though. The football player, powerful and admired jock that he is, cannot imagine being a powerless victim. Never happened to him in his life. Can't conceive of such a thing. But his little sister? He can stretch his imagination to that possibility.
