Dragons

HandsHave compassion for everyone you meet today.

They, too, are battling dragons seeking to scorch them with the fires of anger, doubt, and fear.

Meet them with tenderness, mercy, and love.

Offer them the soothing waters of sympathy and kindness.

Bathe them in the grace of compassion until all dragons cease roaring and crawl back into their caves.
