Metta Monday: On Compassion

Adam Pervez and Friend

Adam Pervez and  a Friend

“Compassion is not a character trait like a sunny disposition.  It must be learned, and it is learned by having adversity at our windows, coming through the gates of our yards, the walls of our towns, adversity that becomes so familiar that we begin to identify and empathize with it.

-Barbara Ascher, “On Compassion
