It’s as though the battleground remembers the battle and is re-playing it. And sometimes the people can hear it..I felt the pain, the loss of life and/or limb, the mourning that went on when my hubby and I visited the Gettysburg battle fields. It was a beautiful day, but the field remember the misery and I felt it so very deeply..I also remember feeling the pain of the visitors to the Vietman War memorial in DC, but not the dead there. and I’ve felt the overwhelming anguish at funerals for people I didn’t even know. .Does that make me an empath? I have felt other people’s other feelings, but only when very strong.
