Compassion is the ability to emotionally relate to a condition of either a person or group and to respond with kindness and concern. Humanity survives because of the compassion which Hashem shows to us as well as the compassion which we give to one another. It is not judgmental, it does not point fingers.  It seeks to raise another person’s soul and make life easier to bear.
