"The first step is cultivating a compassionate awareness. Perhaps the next step is our development as children of God is a capacity for compassion permanence - a courageous and generous capacity to remember the needs of an unjust world even when they are out of our immediate sight. God calls us to grow-up capacity to engage a world of oppression with our heart and mind, even though (thankfully) it is not always before our eyes."- Gary Haugen
