Lots of wonderful things are hatching with this interview series project showcasing ordinary people who are doing extraordinarily compassionate things for others who need help, performing direct hands-on acts of mercy, that incrementally make the world a better place.
What this does for them in turn is equally extraordinary in spiritual and emotional terms.
There are many lessons to learned from their experiences and spiritual gifts and insights to be had by listening and learning from them.
Remarkably, this seems a subject many are interested in, even passionate about. Frankly, I’m surprised, if not shocked, at this though I suspected there was a deep very human need for knowing how the average Joe or Jill can become a hero by alleviating in some small way the suffering and pain right in front of our eyes every day.
I myself have become very inspired at the sheer quantity of human compassion still extant in our world, right outside our front doors, in fact, and have taken great heart and strength in learning about it.
This, I am sure, merits another separate blog devoted exclusively to these remarkable (largely unsung, unrecognized) people, but for starters we’ll start here.
The first interview will appear here in a few weeks. Please stay tuned. This is a work in progress, so please be indulgent and bear with me as things develop and we fine tune formatting, graphics and the rest.
