Sympathy (noun) – Compassion, pity or sorrow for someone’s plight; mutual understanding (from Greek)
Word in a Sentence: In my novel Choices Meant for Gods, Nigel is in sympathy with Jake when their father announces the reason for the emperor’s visit, but he makes no move to stop the plan from moving forward.
Your turn! And you remember the difference between sympathy and empathy from yesterday’s Word of the Day, yes?
“Some days, you just want the dragon to win.”
