Day 137: MLKJ Quote #2


Compassion:
Noun: Sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings and misfortunes of others
Synonyms: pity, mercy, commiseration, clemency

It's certainly an interesting thought that our society produces poverty and one that makes sense to me. This thought makes me think of all the other things our society produces: intolerance, unhealthiness, anger and stigma, and many more... Then I ask the question (to myself) how do we go about restructuring a society? How do we instill the value of compassion into people? Compassion even for ourselves as well as for others?
