Compassion, a value to possess.  Sensitivity, don’t forget.

I hugged a friend who was recently declared free of cancer.  She looks so healthy.  She now has something missing.  Her very long hair.  Guess what else is missing? Empathy from others.  Strangers forget do not bother to see beyond her very short hair.  She really does not need to hear comments such as, “Why do they let people in here like that?” She is a cancer survivor that now is full of life, learning to put on a deaf ear.

I am not perfect.  I have caught myself thinking before I know the facts.  We always have room to get better, to grow,and to never judge the book by its cover.

P.S. My friend looks beautiful in her new “do.”
