Let it be a Weekend Filled with Compassion

With Father’s Day coming up this weekend, we honor the caregivers, fathers, men, and role models in our lives.

This year let’s look at vulnerability. We don’t usually associate vulnerability with our paternal figures. Yet, Brené Brown, an American scholar, author, and public speaker, dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and reveals that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.

So this upcoming weekend, you have permission to be vulnerable. Hugs and heartfelt words are treasured. Share them. Understand that we all need reassurance, love, and community.

Happy celebration of those that have guided, loved, watched out for, showed compassion, and laughed and cried with us.

Executive Director, Compassionate Atlanta

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.
