“Here is what we seek: a compassion that can stand in awe at what the poor have to carry rather than stand in judgment at how they carry it.”― Gregory Boyle, Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion

Below is a story of compassion and empathy. I have had the honour of knowing Dan for a number of years and I find him to be a person who can live in awe at what the marginalize have to carry and not in judgement about how they carry it.

In this short 4 minute video you will see how the folks at the Peterborough Community Chaplaincy help men to die with dignity. It fits well with our theme of late on death and dying.
