Another week, and another letter. This week we focus on C.
C is for Compassion and courage..
As we make connections with people, we come to care for them and show compassion. It takes courage to love, to share our lives and hearts with others. It also takes courage to live an honest, compassionate life, one where others are treated with respect and dignity.
In this day and age, we need both compassion and courage – to face down the hate, the bigotry that surround us.
There are many role models for us to be inspired by: – Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King Jr., Desmond Tutu, Anne Frank, Helen Keller, Eleanor Roosevelt ,Princess Di, Jimmy Carter.
Step up. Actively cultivate compassion and courage. Make our world a better place.
