C is for compassion

I watched a video the other day.

Yea, it may not seem so important to you.

But it is very important.

Joel Burns took a few minutes of his day to address the epidemic of teenage bullying, specifically to the Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual teenagers. The few minutes of his day that he took to address the issues that he had grown up with, the bullying that he endured, things that happened he didn't even tell his parents about. He showed compassion to the young teenagers, telling them that it does get better, telling them that things will change and that there are people out there like them.

His video has been watched over 1 million times by teenagers, their parents and others across the world.

Hopefully you can take a moment to watch it

We need to teach our children compassion. This is something that cannot be taught on a computer, from a book or from a teacher. This is something that the parenta need to take a few minutes out of their busy day, before they start watching television, before they go out, before they get on the computer they need to show children compassion..

C is for compassion.
