Today I am celebrating my sorority Sigma Gamma Rho’s Founder’s Day (established in 1922 – www.sgrho1922.org) and the Charter for Compassion (http://charterforcompassion.org or http://twitter.com/thecharter). When I joined Sigma in 1983, I learned firsthand that in order to practice its motto of “Greater Service, Greater Progress,” I needed to have compassion in my heart. That’s why I am so excited about the Charter for Compassion. It is a reminder to give myself compassion so that I can share it with others through service.
My Art Every Day Month adventures this week have centered on collages and poems about compassion. Check out the video below which features my two collages. You can also hear me read two compassion poems. Enjoy!
Peace, Creativity, Compassion, and Service,
