A portrait of compassion, where we all too ready offer help after blood is let. Needing to learn how to prevent it. This requires forethought and an evolved way of thinking in a non-victimized fashion. It is hard to break the mould of being martyrs and victims. We base complete forms of worship around being a martyr or victim. We have major churches in the name of martyrs. It is a bad habit we need to break. It is just an old drama. It’s a tough one to see through as it is associated with massive amounts of emotional stigma and ceremony. It looks good when they polish it up.
