The mainstream media just blindly regurgitates this “compassion” nonsense without so much as asking a single question?
LOUISVILLE (WDRB) – For the fourth year in a row, the Charter for Compassion International has named Louisville as its Model Compassionate City.
The Charter for Compassion is a cooperative effort to restore compassionate living to the center of community life. It is based in Seattle, Washington.
Rev. Dr. Joan Brown Campbell, chair of the Board of Trustees and the Global Compassion Council, presented the award to Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer on Friday, Oct. 16, during a reception at the 2015 Parliament of the World’s Religions in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Mayor Fischer attended the Parliament as a speaker and panelist, along with Louisville Metro Police Chief Steve Conrad. Tom Williams, of Stoll Keenon Ogden PLLC is co-host of Compassionate Louisville and was a panel moderator at the Parliament.
“It is an honor to be recognized for a trait that comes so naturally to the citizens of Louisville,” Mayor Fischer said of the Model City designation. “Our citizens have a deep and profound instinct to help one another and to give.”
When the Mayor took office in 2011, he set three goals for Louisville – pillars of community life. He said we must be a city of lifelong learning, of health, and of even greater compassion. Louisville was the seventh city to sign on to the Compassion Charter, and Mayor Fischer created Compassionate Louisville to help develop and implement a city-wide campaign to nurture and champion the growth of compassion.
One of its signature events is the annual Mayor’s Give a Day Week, in which the entire city makes time for volunteering, service and compassion. This year, the city broke its own world record, with more than 166,000 volunteers and acts of compassion.
