Compassion - Cupcake
So, last Friday, I was on my lunch break at school when, on my way to the teacher's room, I encountered a little boy in the hallway. He came out of his classroom and gazed up at me, a strange, shell-shocked expression on his face. His hands were held out as though in supplication, and he was covered in vomit. We both froze, staring at each other as he waited for me to do something.

"Ew." I said to him. Then I walked into the teacher's room and ate my sandwhich.

Later, upon reflection, I realize that this was not my most compassionate act.

But I WAS on my lunch break.
