November 9 is when I invite our community and anyone else who feels compelled to join us, to celebrate International Day of Compassion.
It’s a holiday I conceived six years ago. It is simply another small personal step toward peace, which evolved through my 9/11 Bowing Project.
As I prepare to celebrate it on Wednesday, after the utter madness of this year’s election season, I’m thinking that no matter how this election turns out, we’ll be in dire need of compassion.
Yep, compassion for the people we disagree with, and even for the less appealing aspects of ourselves, is for us humans, an ambitious aim.
But we really have no viable alternative, do we?
