I feel compelled that we must learn something about ourselves to better prepare us to handle life’s challenges when they occur.
I believe our problem as a society is that we don’t have a way to:
“The 4Cs of Compassion – Care Consistently about the Capacity to Cope”
We allow for poverty, poor education, crime, abuse, coping, health, and environmental issues to go unaddressed until a crisis occurs. Then we temporarily overreact. The amounts of money which go from one crisis to another are so misused.
A consistent effort to care is the only solution.
So often our philanthropic efforts are part of the problem because they don’t recognize the full society or the full person. They don’t have to address all the needed issues, but they need to be in concert with others who address the other aspects of the full community and/or person.
