Is There Less Compassion Nowadays?

This post is part of the 1000 Voices Speak for Compassion initiative. Today is United Nations World Day of Social Justice. Please check out other 'Voices' by using #1000speak on Facebook and Twitter.

It was my assumed answer to this question that prompted me to sign up for 1000 Voices Speak for Compassion. The world seemed to be a fearful and frightening place, what with ISIS, Boko Haram, Ukraine, homegrown terrorists, Ebola, measles and on, and on. Every day on the news, more despair – isn’t there always?

However today, as I am not feeling one hundred percent, a short post as an act of self-compassion, It is a small sampling of compassionate thoughts and ideas, to hopefully inspire ahead of Friday's full post, and those of twelve hundred other bloggers!

Do You Believe in Love at First Sight?

2 comments:
 Love at first sight - it is an idea that is everywhere in popular culture. It is the premise behind too many books and movies to mention, a phenomenon documented as far back as the Ancient Greeks. But is it real? Do people believe in it? I decided to conduct a small (completely informal and unscientific) survey to find out.

I was astonished to discover that the majority of people do believe in it. Maybe I am too cynical or perhaps it is a throwback to my teenage years, when I categorically did not. I had many other romantic, schoolgirl notions about love and commitment, as I experienced my first loves, lusts and infatuations. However, being a pragmatist at heart, Love at First Sight was not one of them.
