Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, to share in brokenness, fear, confusion, and anguish. Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery, to mourn with those who are lonely, to weep with those in tears. Compassion requires us to be weak with the weak, vulnerable with the vulnerable, and powerless with the powerless. Compassion means full immersion in the condition of being human. —Henri Nouwen

If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. It's the hard that makes it great. —Tom Hanks
Freedom is never given; it is won. —A. Phiilip Randolph
