The Cub Scout core value for the month of March is compassion. Here is a brief Cubmaster minute to help Cub Scout understand the meaning of compassion.
Cubmaster Minute – Compassion
Compati is Latin for “I have suffered with”. (I bet you didn’t think you would be learning any Latin today – did you?) This is where the word compassion comes from.
So to feel compassion doesn’t mean to just feel sorry for another person. It means that you really feel the pain they feel When we feel compassion, then when somebody says or does something hurtful to somebody else, it is like they are saying or doing that thing to us. Hopefully that will encourage us to stick together and stand up for each other.
