    I Will Always, Always Offer a Shoulder to Cry On

    An Admirable Trait

    I guess I have always been compassionate. I somehow knew what others felt, and I just responded to it. There are basic needs that all of us have, in order to survive. For me, being compassionate is just another basic need that I have. When...

    A Way Not Only To Help, But To Live
