    I agree wholeheartedly; these two are inextricably linked and we cannot be one without the other.

      Thank you. Yes, you’re absolutely right and it’s a shame because people either have both or they have nothing.

      It’s a shame more of us don’t buy into this behaviour. Not only would we all be better with each other, but the world would be a better place in which to live.

    I’m going to be old before my time if I try to solve the riddle as to why we’re lacking in compassion and morality these days.

    Perhaps if we grow weary enough we’ll find it in our hearts to make a change.

      Thanks Tim. Yes, not an easy one, but I personally believe it’s got a lot to do with the old values, which have been watered down with each passing generation to the point where those values are almost unrecognisable.

      I don’t believe being compassionate or having morality is difficult. I think what’s more difficult is knowing how to change our perceptions so that we live with those things in our lives.
