Perhaps you’ve heard this famous quote: “You can easily judge the character of a [person] by how he or she treats those who can do nothing for him/her.” 

Similarly, the moral character of society can be defined by the way it treats the most vulnerable. 

I know that when I teach my boys to have compassion and empathy for their furry, feathered and finned friends, I’m raising them to treat everyone, including those who are different from them, with kindness. 

Modelling compassion is the most effective way to teach and promote it in our children.

Well said sis!! Sadly we see less and less compassion in the world today but it always amazes me how even just a few people can make such a huge difference in the kindness and compassion they extend & the ripple effect it has on so many throughout many generations..
