Can you save the world with a mere haiku? Can you save the world with only the first stanza, five little words, of a mere haiku? A new, trending hashtag has inspired people to teach ways of showing compassion to others with one catch…it must be around five words.
#CompassionIn5Words has sought to teach people that even the simplest ideas can have a large impact on people. While most people seemed to obey the five-word rule, given that the whole point of the posts is meant to promote compassion, I’m sure giving or taking a few words here and there is perfectly okay.
