OK.  Day Two of the Compassion Games: Survival of the Kindest is happening and we have crossed into new territory.

Here is a beautiful example of how a community — Nashville — can embrace the Compassion Games to raise the spirit and commitment to compassion in action.  Check out the TV coverage, the theme song and how they are embracing putting compassion into action. This is a dream we share coming true. There are over 175 teams participating in this years games!
This challenges the Compassion Games in new ways —  be in appreciation and amplification of what these communities are doing…. people like Dina Capitani are the Compassion All-Stars that we serve….  please give this some thought…. building a platform like this opens up tremendous possibilities for collective impact.  What do you think about this?  Are you are working on Mission Two as a Secret Agent? Game on!
