  1. Compassion changes society. In point of fact, it’s a strong feeling of sympathy or a whish to help the poor people and it’s like empathy. Furthermore, when people be compassionate, they feel and make the others happy. Such as dalai lama said : ( if you want others to be happy practice compassion. If you want to be happy practice compassion.). And actually, in high up academy, we practice and we learn a lot of think about the amazing activities like cooking for smile . Cooking for a smile make us to feel what the other feel, and understanding the feeling of the others. In additon to that, we will help and comfort when we are feeling sad or worried, so it is solace. Witch this we must practice companion it will change our life!!!.

  2. Empathy or compassion has been one of the debated issues in the world, in the recent years.Empathy changes the society . Unfortunlly , it turned down with severe causes and consequences. In fact, the decline of empathy or compassion are various . People are so self-involved and they grow fearful and suspicious .In addition to that,we remarqued a less of instructional activities. Moreover, compassion, solidarity and kidness have been replaced by narcissim, animosity and cruelly and all this bad qualities are the results of selfishness and the persons start think just about their own problems and selves .
    Now jumping over to the severe consequence like jobless m the society become more devided and divise , antgonism betwen people .
    At the end empathy is based of society and I wish one day we can break out of our bubbles and be more sociable . Really , I long for a better society full of happiness and love , like Dalai Lama says : If you want others be happy , practice compassion.If you want be happy practice compassion.

  3. Compassion and empathy change the society, in fact, when people are compassionate and empathize with people they feel and make people happy. As Dalai Lama said: “If you want others to be happy practice compassion, if you want to be to be happy, practice compassion.” Added to that, oke center and high up academy have been doing that since about 2010, and that was by being compassionate and empathizing poor and needy people who are lost in the shuffle and who are given cold shoulders, blind eyes and even deaf ears; in these schools high up academy and oke center, we rise those poor people’s smiles and give them money and food to survive the throes of grinding poverty, we even do special activities to raze the amount of money that we get in order to have the ability to help more and better these poor people. But we must always be compassionate; not just with the poor, but with every single being, either a human, or an animal, because if no one is compassionate, no one will be happy, not you, neither the others, the poor will stay poor, and the sad will stay sad, as compassion is one of the most essential things in life, so we should all be compassionate and empathize if we want to live a good life, and never forget Dalai Lama’s quote, and thank you for your attention.

  5. compassion and empathy can change people’s live in point of
    fact , to feel people pain and care about other problems is a
    strong indicator of a big heart and a helpful personality .
    nevertheless we live in a divisive soceity full of mistrust people
    grow selfineshe in and everyone think only of his own interests
    despite this they want to be loved as lisa say we all think we want
    to be loved but what actually feels good to us is feeling loving .

    also the one’s who sleep on the streetbut if you don’t have someone
    who moutivate you , you can be losed .
