Considering that compassion is all about love and kindness to others, I'd say that it is exactly what I feel towards the giorls who work as shop assistants. Very often I put myself in their place and feel as if I was one of them.
Marco Antônio , Brazil
Precisamos ser compassivos, e isso é um valor que vemos ser pouco praticado, mas cada um tem que fazer valer. We need to be compassionate, and this is a value that we see little practiced, but each one has to enforce.
Anderson, Colatina, Es Brasil
