The Courage to show Compassion
While on vacation in Europe, I had the exciting experience of visiting the Scottish Parliament. Little did I know that the World Press Photo Exhibition would take me into the depths of human compassion.
The photography was outstanding and it moved me in a way that I cannot explain. As I write this blog, I feel tingling all over my body as the hairs on my arms stand up. I felt so much from these pictures. It was a connection "to the stories that matter" (World Press Photo's Mission) that I cannot shake.
Transgender is such an important story about humanity. Transgender are people who just want to be who they are. They want to be loved for who they are...
I was surprised and in awe to see the photograph below win second place singles in Contemporary Issues. The awareness is wonderful and exciting for the Transgender community.
Thailand leads the world for medical tourism. They are known for their strong niche in gender affirming surgery. This photo was taken in a Thailand hospital.
It takes compassion and courage to support others in their journey.
Compassion is what all people want and seek. It takes courage to show compassion for others. I applaud this photographer for his courage and compassion.
