I believe compassion lives in all of us, often in slumber, and we just need to look beyond the grey that confronts our every hour, often encaging us, and into the beauty we envision for ourselves and our world. Only then will our compassion awaken. When we forgive the wrongdoings of others and simply love, we bring life and color to humanity. With this vibrancy we inspire ourselves and each other to step out of our boundaries to sustain this beauty and, possibly without the realization, we contribute to a positve change in our world. But before we begin, we must search where our compassion lies. We can find it by opening our minds and forgiving, by overlooking rewards, money, and recognition for our deeds and, most importantly, by loving at all costs -- even when we are hated for it.
