“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us hasheadshot cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” -Albert Schweitzer

Here at the WCA, we are fortunate that none of us does this work alone. As the end of the year approaches, we take time to reflect on the contributions from people on our teams, everyone within this organization, and you—our community—who continue to give of your time and talents to help us with our mission to provide safety, healing, and freedom from domestic abuse and sexual assault.

Our vision—“to foster a community where individuals thrive in safe, healthy relationships”— can be daunting in the midst of continued challenges that do not have simple solutions. The progress we hope to achieve requires daily, intentional action. However, when our “lights” may be dimmed from exhaustion or frustration, we know there is support we can reach out for.

During this month, take time to practice gratitude for the people in your life who show up to lend a helping hand, speak words of encouragement and comfort, or inspire you to pursue your personal mission and remind you why it matters.

By being compassionate listeners and attentive neighbors who are invested in creating a better future for our community, each of us has the power to be the spark that reignites someone’s fire.

Are you or someone you know being abused? Call the WCA’s 24-hour domestic abuse hotline at 208-343-7025 or visit wcaboise.org.

The Compassion Project: Let us be the ones who transform our world by allowing compassion to lead our action. Throughout the year, this column will feature the various ways to have compassion for others, for our specific organization, and for yourself.
