Compassion Games: Survival of the Kindest

During a time in my life when I was desperately searching for inner peace, I had a pivotal moment when I realized I could genuinely care about the wellbeing of others.  The key to this internal shift was the understanding that love and compassion are verbs and not just feelings.  They must be backed by actions.

Dr. Stephen Sideroff, the Director of the September 11-21, called the Compassion Games: Survival of the Kindest.

When looking into what the Compassion Games are all about, I discovered that the project absolutely speaks to the understanding I had gained years ago about love and compassion being verbs, rather then just feelings.

What are the Compassion Games?

The mission of the Golden Rule

When speaking with Dr. Sideroff about the importance of such an event, he said, “For too long, our culture has fostered survival of the fittest.  The Compassion Games is a brilliant idea to engage people in competing to be most compassionate and thus shift our focus to the Golden Rule, and the interconnectedness of us all.  This is what the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Ethics believes is necessary for the health and true survival of our society.”
