    Compassion is basically feeling bad for the misfortunate of others. Examples: You had a compassion for someone who got their hopes up for a girl they liked but she rejected him. You would show compassion to him to make him feel better. Does that help?

    it sounds like you're citing an example based on personal experience @sarahvoltage :P jk Now that you know the meaning of compassion, what do you want to say about compassion or something that relates to it? Your thesis must at least mention your subject or main topic: "... compassion is the first step to save many lives in this ever-growing global economic disparities" as an example. How do you persuade people to be compassionate? Can you support or provide a story along a statement that says "... compassion is both a strength and weakness" "Compassion is not just a human characteristic, evidence suggests that it may be a characteristic of all sentient beings." You can also employ powerful synonyms so it doesn't get boring with repetition or you can perhaps choose how to emphasize your point at the end of each paragraphs of the body of your essay.

    Thank you ninnypoo! That's exactly what I did. @SarahVoltage, thanks for your help as well! It does sound personal though.

    I started with a persuasive definition of compassion first, then I went into a personal experience then a conclusion paragraph (of course).
