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.

The combination of colors make other colors. On the ROY G BIV scale, red and yellow make orange, yellow and blue make green, and blue and red make indigo and violet.

But in mixing of pigments or dyes for printing, the primaries normally used are cyan, magenta, and yellow. And for additive combination of colors, as in overlapping projected lights or in CRT displays, the primary colors normally used are red, green, and blue.

In any case, here are some color songs, with links I HOPE work in your country:

Fancy Colours – Chicago

Red Rubber Ball – the Cyrkle
Orange Crush – REM
Mellow Yellow – Donovan
Green Tambourine – Lemon Pipers
Blue Bayou – Roy Orbison
Mood Indigo- Ella Fitzgerald
Purple Haze – Jimi Hendrix Experience
