Violence or Compassion?

I think compassion has a greater impact on society. Compassion is BIG, you just don’t know it. They don’t show when people are compassionate on the news, but it is big. Compassion is better, but some people think violence has a bigger impact on society, that’s what we see at least. But compassion does. Being compassionate makes people happier, more joyful, and better people.

I showed my compassion for stray dogs in Puerto Rico. I raised money for them and it made me feel better that I helped them.

Compassion can change people’s lives forever. Compassion brings society together.
