Compassion comes from the Latin com (with) and passus (one who suffers), but the word has come to mean more than its literal definition. Compassion to me is a basic attribute every human should show. It is what makes us different from other creatures. Its very simple, but some may find it hard to show to people outside their social circle I find it easiest to show to people I do not know. Everyone has had times where all they need is just someone to talk to there are so many things that can be prevented by just listening to someone. That is what my tile is about. The masks under the lights represent masks that some people wear every day in the spotlight to try and fit into a stereo type or be who someone else wants them to be. The random objects falling are representative of addictions, habits or problems people struggle with every day: cigarettes to represent that addiction, broken bottles and glasses to represent alcohol addiction, pills, among other things.
