Compassion around Atlanta

I remember exactly where I was on the morning of September 11, 2001.  I’m guessing that you remember where you were, too. I had no idea how the day would impact my life and my work. It still serves as a constant reminder of our interconnectedness. 15 years later and we are still struggling with how to embrace others who are not like us. Hopeless? No. Today, I focus on the amazing and hopeful things that have happened since then. Too many to count. The compassion I see each day and the will to make our communities safer and more accepting are abundant.

I invite you, as we remember those lives lost then and now, to host a conversation around compassion. Contact us at info@CompassionateAtl.org to learn more.

Keep moving forward. Read the events below. Get involved. Be part of the movement for compassion and positive change.

Leanne Rubenstein, Executive Director of Compassionate Atlanta
