Those who have compassion show an understanding of others and treat them with kindness, compassion, generosity and a forgiving spirit.  

The best example of caring and compassion can be found in the story of Mother Teresa. Mother Teresa left the comfort of her home as a Catholic nun to live with the poorest people of the streets in India.  She did whatever it took to bring them food, education, and medicine.  She knew all people should live with dignity, and demonstrated her caring spirit for 50 years to serve the sick, poor, and hopeless people of India.
