#STRUGGLES Series

"Compassion"


* * *


We care 40% less than people did In the 1980s.

 

How does technology cause us to care, less?

 

    We’re more obsessed with ourselves.   

    Overwhelming exposure to suffering desensitizes us.

    Lack of personal interaction makes it easier not to care.

 

    Compassion counts.

         True compassion demands action.

         To say you care but not act is to not care at all.

 

Compassion:

Interrupts

Costs

Changes lives
