Awaken Compassion

Dedicated to this Ted Talk, from which many of the below words came, and the kernel of an compassion unit for my students.

Make fall a season
not of pity
but of empathy.
Open your hearts
and walk in
the shadow of another.
Create a community of kinship.
Stand in awe of burdens of others
not in judgement of
how they carry it.
There is no
us and them,
only
us.
