Character education is a part of the Cub Scout program. Here is a brief Cubmaster minute to help Cub Scout understand the meaning of compassion. This goes with the Scout Law points of “kind” and “loyal“.
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.
