As a clown Dr. Patch Adams has been at 10,000 death-beds and has witnessed the power of love and compassion. In a quote he says, "if you have 7 days to live, I am your man." What a beautiful attitude and it couldn't be more true. We should all be so fortunate to have a Patch by our side. Well we are.
The written word cannot do Patch the justice that he deserves. Cher Duncombe had the privilege of interviewing Patch so that we can connect more with him and what compassion and love are truly about.
Don't take my word for it. Listen to the audio of this amazing interview... (more)
In an effort to better the human condition there is one force that is so powerful and contained in every human being that when we are able to tap into it there is no doubt in my mind that we can save the future of this planet and the future of mankind. That is the force of compassion. Within compassion lie the seeds of love, passion, kindness, caring and empathy.
Every single day millions of people carry out compassionate acts towards others and towards animals. Yet at the same time the destructive, negligent acts of others continue. What if on one day of... (more)

Bright flashing lights and sirens accompany screeching tires that turn into the emergency room driveway, the angels that dedicate their lives to the saving of others never stopping for one moment in their endeavor to save the one they now bring to other angels inside the hospital itself.
A warm smile, as the eyes of another angel looks deep into yours as the gurney rushes down hallways, he or she reassuring you that all will be well, don't you worry now. A doctor's hands probing and prodding, diagnosing the problem. Firm but gentle hands, all working in tandem, they lift you onto yet... (more)
Using a criteria based on several factors, such as a population of 150,000 or more, services available per capita, quality of services, and access to services, I have come up with America's Most Compassionate City. It's not a city that most would think of in this day and age of made up divisions like 'red' states, 'blue' states, or the increasingly popular 'purple' state terms thrown about by talking heads in MSM.

Are we so aware of our own frailty, which causes us to choose to ignore rather than embrace our fellow... (more)
