“Compassion isn’t popular. People often prefer to be right.” – Karen Armstrong
Join the world at http://www.charterforcompassion.org to sign the Charter for Compassion.
The Charter brings together the voices of people from all religions. It seeks to remind the world that while all faiths are not the same, they all share the core principle of compassion and the Golden Rule.
The Charter will change the tenor of the conversation around religion. It will be a clarion call to the world.

Let’s reclaim the compassion – the “suffering with”, the hesed, the loving-kindness.
Amen. Amin. Aho. Blessed Be. Namaste.
