Charter for Compassion

A few days ago I was driving back from yoga training, listening to NPR and heard Karen Armstrong speak. I'd read her memoir "The Spiral Staircase" a few years ago and liked it, and hearing her voice brought her more to life for me. But I only caught half of the conversation because I arrived home early, so I looked it up online and heard the whole thing. And that lead me to her effort called "Charter for Compassion"... which launched today (see video above).

The Charter for Compassion is all about remembering the Golden Rule, and always acting with that in mind -- empathetically and compassionately toward all life. Basically building a better, more peaceful world by putting yourself in other people's shoes.

This really inspired me, and I wanted to take part in this event by sharing it here. Pass it on!
