Some Snippets of Compassion

As one of the 1000 Voices for Compassion, I am working on my post for Friday. However today, as I am not feeling one hundred percent, a short post as an act of self-compassion, It is a small sampling of compassionate thoughts and ideas, to hopefully inspire ahead of Friday's full post, and those of twelve hundred other bloggers!

A Beautiful Quote

I think it is typical that acts of kindness are forgotten by the doers, but remembered by the receivers. Regardless, these gestures are the ones that put smiles on faces. The best part of life, indeed.

Love Will Save the Day

This song has always been a favourite. I think it fits the compassion theme well. The original video made the words even more powerful, but for some reason, it is no longer on You Tube. However, it is a great song and great Canadian talent (still crushing on David Usher, after all these years!)

And Finally, Powerful Words from Martin Luther King Jr.

"True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it understands that an edifice that produces beggars needs restructuring."

Hopefully this is where the world is going - to a place of real change for the better, not just one that places a Band-Aid over its problems. 

Okay, more about compassion on Friday. I hope to see you then. Search for me and other bloggers using #1000Speak on Twitter and Facebook.
