THE CHARTER FOR COMPASSION

COMPASSIONATE SAN ANTONIO . .

INSPIRATION

Poem: “Dream Deferred,” by Langston Hughes

What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up Like a raisin in the sun? Or fester like a sore-- And then run? Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over-- like a syrupy sweet? Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode?

The Great Society, A Compassionate City

Today is the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon Johnson's unveiling of his vision of a Great Society, presented in a graduation speech at the University of Michigan in 1964, almost six months to the day after he was sworn in as president after Kennedy's...

A Dog and His Reflection

A Dog was carrying a piece of meat in his mouth to eat it in peace at home. On his way he had to cross a bridge across a brook. As he crossed, he looked down and saw his own reflection in the water. Thinking it was another dog with another piece of meat, he made up...

Yesterday at our weekly peaceCENTER staff meeting we were talking about how San Antonio already IS a compassionate city — we just need to claim it. "Just look at the Raul Jimenez Thanksgiving Dinner," someone said. "How many other cities do THAT?" The Jimenez Dinner,...

A Body, Though One, Has Many Parts

In the Christian New Testament, 1 Corinthians 12-31, Saint Paul creates a metaphor of a diverse community by describing the interrelationship of the parts of the body, much in the same way Aesop did in his fable, The Belly and the Members: Now if the foot should say,...

Rebuking a Tyrant

In a certain year I was sitting retired in the great mosque at Damascus, at the head of the tomb of Yahiya the prophet (on whom be peace!). One of the kings of Arabia, who was notorious for his injustice, happened to come on a pilgrimage, and having performed his...
