is compassion? Compassion means different things to different
people. To me compassion is very important, in order to
make our world a more happy and friendly place to live in.
Compassion is one of the most important things that we as
U.S. Citizen should practice to make our world a safer place
for our children. Compassion mean a lot to me, because is
the ability to do a kind act for someone in need. I have
practice compassion to those who have less then me or are
in the need of help because is extremely important to help
others. I have demonstrate compassion to other because I
have help my community one way or another so they can see
that there is still someone out there who cares for the
well been of our community and our citizen.
in my free time I have practice compassion because I have
contributed back to my community because I have done community
services at Wadsworth Elementary and church. By helping
others, I feel as if I am making a difference in others’
life and in my own. I enjoy helping others especially in
an elementary school because it brings back memories of
how I used to struggle to get my work done because I never
had anyone to help me with the subjects that I did not understand.
I decided to help kids out for that exact reason. I wanted
them to see that there is someone willing to help. In church
I help during the weekends. I like serving during mass and
after mass because it is my church and I attended there
for my Catechism and my Confirmation.
In school I
try to practice compassion because in our leadership class
we have plan and participated in food drives. During thanksgiving
we have can drive to take for the less fortunate and thank
them something to eat. Then during Christmas we have toy
drives so we take toys for those kids who has less than
us. I am also a Peer College Counselor. As a Peer College
Counselor I guide the student body by telling them the requirements
they need as a senior in order to graduate. I have helped
many senior apply for college, help them with the FAFSA
and look for scholarship for them to do. By helping others,
I feel as if I am making a difference in other’s life
and in my own.
If we all are
willing to demonstrated compassion, we all are most likely
to live in a better environment and get along with one another.
Demonstrating compassion is been there for those who need
you the most. Anyone who gives a helping hand is because
they decided to, not because they are getting something
in returned. Someone who is willing to help others do it
from the heart, that is part of been generous with other
and is one of the best way to demonstrated compassion.
