Melissa was one of the first broadcast journalist I had the pleasure of supervising. I knew instantly she was waaaay to talented for what she was currently doing. She was also the first person to babysit my baby girl. I suppose I have always trusted her. She has since recieved a commision in the Air Force Reserves, as a Public Affiairs Officer with the 1st Combat Camera Squadron...and works as a Communications Specialist at Thomson Reuters. More importatntly to me at least...she too is a yoga instructor. She works with Veterans...and MOST importantly to me...she ALWAYS helps me with just about anything I ask. THANK YOU MELISSA! YOU'RE THE BEST! _()_Namaste Chris
For me, compassion is: Not forcing people to apologize for who they are, but recognizing that goodness and darkness lives in each of us. All of us have times of great heart, lightness, brilliance, and an abundant goodness. Conversely, we each travel through sorrow, hopelessness, rage and utter darkness. Acknowledging the darkness and letting it pass, loosens its grip on us. It does not define us or others. Compassion is empathizing with others while they are celebrating in goodness or traversing the darkness.
