Can you teach compassion? This is a great infographic today that we looked at in class to describe the contrast of service and compassion. The infographic really spoke more about service and the statistics of people volunteering their time without considering the motivation behind the action. Even though compassion is very difficult to measure it is simply not understood as solely service.
