Charter for Compassion – Pakistan
August 2, 2011
This green blue green planet that we all human beings share as our motherland comprises of different cultures, races and creeds. And in spite of differences that transcend borders and generations, human beings have continued to exist with peace and harmony.
A wise man once said:
It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.
Perhaps this holds more ground than just being a pretty set of words.
A single thread connects us all irrespective of our backgrounds and helps us survive peacefully. ‘Compassion’ is fueling the human race and we need every last drop to keep life running. Only compassion can give us a better life be it personal or professional, be it sports or studies. And kindness towards strangers always leaves a positive mark on an individual’s life, we must not think twice before giving a helping hand. Even a single smile can prove to be the only the ray of sunshine in a stranger’s life.
Human beings as God’s superior creation deserve intuitive compassion. We underestimate the power of a kind word or a listening ear that can turn a life around. Go ahead, take a step, reach out and make a difference that will last till the end of time! ~ Wasim Akram.
