We do live in a Compassionate City
I am humbled by the City we live in.
From Community Care to Gillian's Place to Pride Niagara to Hospice Niagara, we have so many great organizations doing good for those who may require some special care and consideration, or those sometimes outside of the circle.
Compassion isn’t about being friendly or being religious, it’s about caring about others even at their worst, you never know what a simple smile can do to someone else.
Recently I offered a man I have seen around town who is clearly in need, a coffee and a muffin. Instead, he just asked for someone to talk to. Instead of bringing him something from Tims, we went in and enjoyed a warm coffee and a nice chat. I hope it made him smile and know our community cares.
