WZM Award



WZM Award presented to Michelle Ramirez - Garfield High School










Do you remember a time when someone made your day by opening the door for you, or offering to carry your groceries? Or feeling good about yourself when someone told you, you made their day by listening to them because they needed someone to talk to? Well, these are all examples of compassion. To me, compassion isn't just a character trait, it's a mindset.

Compassion is a way of looking at people. Choosing to see their problems and attempting to help them. Although compassion may appear to be a minor quality, it is essential for society to function. It is required for the development of an empathetic society that understands the needs and conditions of others. Compassion is necessary for producing citizens who are globally aware and accepting of others. Compassion is one of the foundations of individual and societal ethics. Compassion combats stereotypes and prejudices while also encouraging forgiveness in communities all around the world. Compassion affects people not just on a social level, but also on a personal level, it makes them kinder. The acknowledgment that you don't know what's going on in everyone's life and should, as a result, give others the benefit of the doubt is the foundation of compassion and the source of compassionate actions. Everyone's support system should include compassion. A compassionate person might brighten someone's day by complimenting them or smiling at them. A compassionate life is one in which you live that way every day, one in which you see everyone as someone who requires those small acts.

Another reason compassion aids people in leading fulfilling lives is that compassion is just caring profoundly about something or someone at its most fundamental leveL Being passionate about something gives your life meaning and purpose. A life full of love and deep relationships with people and activities you care deeply about is more fulfilling than one in which you just go through the movement. Compassion fills you with empathy and thoughtfulness, which helps you think about and appreciate every area of your life more fully. Compassion also allows a person to live a meaningful life by putting their own problems into perspective. It causes you to become less self-absorbed and more concerned with society and your place within it. Compassion can make you happier and enable you to leave a wonderful legacy. Because every life is important, everyone deserves compassion. That is why compassion is so important, my life is equally as valuable as anyone else's.

As a result, compassionate people can stop thinking of their lives as more essential or significant than others', which develops acceptance and forgiving, resulting in a happier and more fulfilled individual and society.
