Have you ever heard the voice of compassion? I don't mean sympathy or understanding, or active listening responses. I mean the sound of compassion in a person's voice.
I heard it last night. She was talking, just briefly, about the oil spill disaster. It was just a couple of sentences, suggesting that we all hold a good thought for the people, the animals, and the water in that region. I heard, in her tone of voice, true and simple and real, compassion. It was a beautiful sound.
Maybe if you listen for it, you'll get to hear that sound sometime.
