Charter for Compassion

TED launched a new site called CharterForCompassion inspired by world events and a universal recognition of the power of the Golden Rule.

I invite you to take a moment to be inspired by this creative video and share your own story of compassion.

Thank you

Thanks, Mark, for sharing the video with us. Makes me think about an discussion I had last week with the executive director of a "unity movement" who was wondering why I didn't want to donate money to it right now.

Answer: I'm devoting as much time and $ as I can to a local group called Linking Arms, Inc. Why's that? I see where all the $ goes, and I like where it goes... to help kids who are in trouble in school and their families. The group approaches it in a unique way. Helps the caretakers of the children get education and jobs they need. Conducts family-oriented activities. Provides homework and social mentoring. Last, the group holds those they help accountable by having them help others who need help. A lot of helping going on here. And my comment is way too long. But you motivated me, Mark. ;-)
