About the speaker

Owner, Pulp Paperie & Gifts in the Blackstone District

It’s easy to love your neighbor and do unto them when your actions are what you would want someone to do to/for you. But what about those times when we’re shown the dark, ugly side of people and life. Where do we find compassion then? Can we maintain kindness towards others without compromising our identity and beliefs?
