Everyday Compassion : #1000speak for Compassion

I had joined this project a few weeks ago because of one word that has a lot of value for me - COMPASSION. The emotion that is one of the few higher things that separate us humans from the other beings.

Often we show our best to strangers and worst to those closest to us. Because our public images have become more important than our personal beings.

In huge cities living in "apartments", using the best "gadgets" we overlook lots of human loneliness and misery around us. The window that is never open, the pair of eyes behind the wire mesh door, the lady who keeps mumbling in the elevator, we overlook because we are so self-engrossed.

The family member whose sleeping patterns or eating habits have changed, the household help who has become very silent and forgetful suddenly.

We need more eyes and ears than ever, more human contact, conversations and smiles. A simple "good morning !" , "Hello ! How are you?", could make someones day. A text, a call, an e-mail could become a saviour for someone who thinks nobody loves him/her.

Lets be there for those who could use a friend , a smile, a helping hand.
