THE CHARTER FOR COMPASSION

. . is a cooperative effort to restore not only compassionate thinking but, more importantly, compassionate action to the center of religious, moral and political life. Compassion is the principled determination to put ourselves in the shoes of the other, and lies at the heart of all religious and ethical systems.

COMPASSIONATE SAN ANTONIO . .

. . . is a grassroots movement that promotes, supports and celebrates San Antonio’s commitment to be a world-class compassionate city: one where the civic government, the religious and volunteer organizations, the businesses, the community and its educational institutions come together to recognize the importance and value of compassion in the life of a city and by doing so create an ethos of compassion and a safety net for its most vulnerable citizens. #compassionateSA

INSPIRATION

The Ant and the Dove

A Dove saw an Ant fall into a brook. The Ant struggled in vain to reach the bank, and in pity, the Dove dropped a blade of straw close beside it. Clinging to the straw like a shipwrecked sailor to a broken spar, the Ant floated safely to shore. Soon after, the Ant saw...

The Ass, the Ape and the Mole

They who their sorrows most bemoan May find worse miseries than their own. An Ass his want of horns bewails; An Ape that Apes are short of tails; "What would you say," a Mole replies, "Were you, like me, depriv'd of eyes?" This version of Aesop's fable is from "Fables...

Poem: “Of History and Hope,” by Miller Williams

We have memorized America how it was born and who we have been and where. In ceremonies and silence we say the words, telling the stories, singing the old songs. We like the places they take us. Mostly we do. The great and all the anonymous dead are there. We know the...

The Farming Brothers

In days gone by, two brothers, Raul and Johan, who lived on adjoining farms fell into conflict. It was the first serious rift in 35 years of farming side-by-side in central Germany, sharing machinery, and trading labour and goods as needed without a single problem...

Poem: “Work Gangs,” by Carl Sandburg

Box cars run by a mile long. And I wonder what they say to each other When they stop a mile long on a sidetrack. Maybe their chatter goes: I came from Fargo with a load of wheat up to the danger line. I came from Omaha with a load of shorthorns and they splintered my...

The Rewarding Trade

Once upon a time, a wife told her husband: “Tomorrow is the feast day, Abu Abdallah, and our children don’t have new clothes like all the other children.” “This is due to your wasteful spending,” she added. I spend money on charity, this is not wasteful, dear wife,”...

Reading Literature Makes Us Smarter and Nicer

"Raymond Mar, a psychologist at York University in Canada, and Keith Oatley, a professor emeritus of cognitive psychology at the University of Toronto, reported in studies published in 2006 and 2009 that individuals who often read fiction appear to be better able to...
