PIETAS, COMPASSION, HUMANITY...

by Marco Stefano Vitiello February. 27, 2009 5244 views

This old lady is a florist.
She has a stand close to Rome and, almost every day, she takes all the flowers left and goes to a very special and not well known place.
It's matter of compassion and humanity: not for money, non for any other special reason, just because she was a child when those young (very very young) soldiers died and were buried far from their country.

PS > Compassion is a profound human emotion prompted by the pain of others. More vigorous than empathy, the feeling commonly gives rise to an active desire to alleviate another's suffering. It is often, though not inevitably, the key component in what manifests in the social context as altruism. In ethical terms, the various expressions down the ages of the so-called Golden Rule embody by implication the principle of compassion: Do to others as you would have done to you. Ranked a great virtue in numerous philosophies, compassion is considered in all the major religious traditions as among the greatest of virtues.
