Won’t You Be…

compassion education Joan Winifred love

my NEIGHBOR? 🙂

Woo-Hoo:

“It’s such a good feeling to know You’re alive...it’s such a HAPPY feeling….” 🙂 You know who sings it…and better than me:

(why-mr-rogers-is-having-a-big-moment-in-education)

these songs are choking me up…bringing me back to precious formative years…my parents strictly limited TV…not when it came to…Mr. Rogers:  a beloved, amazing teacher to countless kids…He and Others positively impacted me/my childhood:

“Part of the problem with the word ‘disabilities’ is that it immediately suggests an inability to see or hear or walk or do other things that many of us take for granted. But what of people who can’t feel? Or talk about their feelings? Or manage their feelings in constructive ways? What of people who aren’t able to form close and strong relationships? And people who cannot find fulfillment in their lives, or those who have lost hope, who live in disappointment and bitterness and find in life no joy, no love? These, it seems to me, are the real disabilities.”

“Mutual caring relationships require kindness and patience, tolerance, optimism, joy in the other’s achievements, confidence in oneself, and the ability to give without undue thought of gain.”

“Most of us, I believe, admire strength. It’s something we tend to respect in others, desire for ourselves, and wish for our children. Sometimes, though, I wonder if we confuse strength with other words—like ‘aggression’ and even ‘violence’. Real strength is neither male nor female; but it is, quite simply, one of the finest characteristics that a human being can possess.”

“Real strength has to do with helping others.”

What’s been important in my understanding of myself and others is the fact that each one of us is so much more than any one thing. A sick child is much more than his or her sickness.
A person with a disability is much, much more than a handicap. A pediatrician is more than a medical doctor. You’re MUCH more than your job description or your age or your income or your output.” ~Mr. Fred Rogers Quotes

Who’s Your Neighbor?! (excerpted from: You Must Love Your Neighbor)

  • To have compassion for people means that we see their suffering and we want to do something to help them

  • Neighbor: We usually think of a neighbor as someone who lives close to us or someone who has a lot in common with us. However, in his illustration of the Samaritan, Jesus taught us that we should view all people as our neighbor, no matter what their nationality or culture is. Also, Jesus taught us that we can be a neighbor to others when we love them and have compassion for them

‘You must love your neighbor as yourself.’”—Matthew 22:39.
