mmw_compassion0430When thinking of Compassion, what comes to mind? In "Compassionate Societies" case, it is the ending of suffering worldwide. But how can just one person make a difference in this world? By changing and affecting those around them with small acts of compassion that can be demonstrated in their every day lives.

The most important aspect of compassion is that it is not enough to simply 'be' compassionate; you must act on your feelings as well as beliefs. Our every day lives provide us with new and unique opportunities and outlets for expressing what we feel. Citizens in our society are lucky to live in a democracy that allows us, as individuals, to speak out and rally for what we truly believe in.
