During the “Phantom of the Opera” we learned at the end about Christine showing compassion twords the Phantom by kissing him. She shows him that not every person in this world is horrible. Watching these dramatic scenes in the movie are just heart wrenching. I was crying as I watched. Compassion is a very important and very beautiful thing in life. If we don’t have compassion twords people or things we really don’t care. In my life I’ve been shown so much compassion. When I was born my mom couldn’t take care of me and put me up for adoption. She did that so I could have a better chance in life with a good family because she knew it took a mom and a dad to raise a child. Without her doing what she did, who knows were I could be right now. I’ve also been shown compassion by many of my friends. Last year was a difficult year for me and instead of leaving me and going you’re on your own 2 of my clostest friends made sure I was ok and that I was gonna make it. They didn’t run away and hide. They made sure that nothing was going to happen to me. Without them my life would be not even close to as amazing as it is today. Compassion is a beautiful thing that we all need to have. Because if we didn’t have compassion we wouldn’t know what love and grace is. Compassion is one of the most important things in this world and I hope in the years to come more people would be shown the compassion I was shown and more.

    Hello Hope,

    Mrs. Kriese here, your mentor for the Edublogs student challenge.

    What a beautiful and moving post you’ve written. You acknowledge the gift your birthmother gave you in placing you for adoption, and in doing so, you show compassion for her and her situation when you were born. Pretty profound for someone your age.

    Sounds like you are blessed with true friends. I like the way you put it in your “About Me” page: “The people in my life make it much more interesting.” In this blog, you express gratitude for the people and experiences in your life that have made you the person you are. That’s a good example for the rest of us.

    I look forward to visiting your blog every couple of weeks during the challenge.

    :- )
    Mrs. Kriese

    You have a great view of compassion and I admire someone like you who keeps their head out of water. I am sorry to hear about your past but remember that after a thunderstorm is a rainbow. 🙂
