Charter for Compassion

I have been working on the curriculum for our upcoming Neighboring Faiths class with our 6th and 7th graders. In the course of researching and writing I have learned about and been inspired by the Charter for Compassion. The post above contains a video with the entire charter. When I figure out how, I'll put it into the sidebar so it can stay at the top for a while (I need to make the video appear smaller) Currently at the top of the sidebar there's a longish video with Karen Armstrong who initiated the Charter with her TED prize and presented it to the World Parliament of Religions in December of 2009. It's very inspiring.
