The Power of Momentum

The work of Compassionate Atlanta is to bring forward the intentionality around using compassion in how we live our lives.  How we interact with one another. How we make decisions. How we try to make the world and the communities that we live in a better place. Today it is exciting to celebrate the continued growth of this intentional commitment to making compassion a compelling part of how we live in community. Earlier this week the Fulton County Board of Commissioners passed a resolution to sign the Charter for Compassion.

Compassion is a core ingredient in how we make decisions and how we show up for one another.

At a time when all eyes are on the referendums and resolutions and reform of many of our legislative acts, it’s exactly this type of action taken by Fulton County that represents hope. It’s through these steps – one step at a time – that we are aware and deliberate about creating compassion. These are the steps that will make a difference, not only at our front door, but in the global world we live in.

Thank you to Chairman John Eaves and the entire Fulton County Commission for being a leader in signing this resolution and affirming the Charter. May we all look forward to the day when more Metro Atlanta municipalities take this courageous step.
