    Compassion is a bridge to a better life for the children and a bridge for me to have a more caring, loving heart.

    Compassion is a bridge between poverty and its opposite: enough (for the children it serves).

    Compassion is a bridge to cross the mental divide between complacency in western “wealth” and a new understanding of how the rest of the world lives (as per yesterday’s post).

    For the children Compassion is a bridge of hope, a bridge of life.

    For sponsors like me, Compassion is a bridge to a more generous spirit, a better set of priorities and a more humble heart.
    Compassion is a bridge to life that could have been mine but for the grace of God.

    between my heart and
    -Tausi’s heart
    -Denisse’s heart,
    -Maria’s heart
    -Uwizera’s heart, and
    -Rebecca’s heart.

    Yes, you’re definitely on a limb…

    Jesus is the bridge, Compassion is more like the ‘tap-tap’ that crosses it bringing little ones from one side to the other.

    …between two cultures that need each other

    I love Dave’s analogy too — I’ve seen those tap-taps in Haiti.
