‘By swallowing evil words unsaid, no one has ever harmed his stomach.’

Winston Churchill

This task was a simple one designed to encourage our Middle School students to reflect on the meaning of Compassion. On a practical level it was an opportunity for me to learn how to turn a slideshow into an iMovie.

Compassion is hard to explain in words. For some it is the same as ‘pity’, for others it is ‘kindness’. I would argue that these images convey its meaning far more clearly than mere words could.

I regret that the images were pulled from Google Images which means that not all references or sources are sited. I claim no ownership of the images except those I took on our school’s trip to Nepal in 2008 which appear late in the video.
