Compassionate- the act of showing care or concern for others. Compassion can be shown through empathetic and sympathetic feelings or actions shared with another person. The act of being compassionate is not showing pity towards others.


"The Police Department

Changed their garments

And became the Please Department

And instead of clubs and cuffs,

Saying Please was quite enough.

“Please stop breaking down that door.”

“Please stop robbing that jewelry store.”

“Please stop stealing that motor scooter.”

“Please stop shooting off that gun.”

“Please stop forging checks for fun.”

“Please stop ripping off those tires.”

“Please stop setting things on fire.”

And if they needed more persuasion,

They took ’em down to the Please Station

Where the friendly Chief of Please

Said Please, Please, Please

On bended knees.

And they stopped all crime with ease

By politely saying “Please.”(Shel Silverstein)
