Religious and secular leaders call for compassion

Published: Tue, November 24, 2009 @ 2:40 p.m.

GIRARD — A call for compassion highlighted the 24th annual Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast.

The Mahoning Valley Association of Churches sponsored the event, which was attended by about 180 people this morning at Mahoning Country Club.

Rabbi Franklin Muller of Congregation Rodef Sholom in Youngstown asked God “to kindle in us a passion for compassion” in his opening prayer.

The keynote speaker, U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Niles, D-17th, continued the thought by discussing how compassion relates to individual, business and governmental responsibility.

There is no compassion left in the Mahoning Valley. People fear for their futures, and have done so for so long that many of them have turned to anger and hate, finding someone, another stranger, 'not one of us' to point the finger to. This can be seen in these types of forums: a piece about crime and folks type what they wish they had the nerve to do or say in person, and it's not always pretty.
How nice that a prayer breakfast should choose to conjure up positive thoughts, instead of figuring out how to make a real difference. You're either a leader in your community or you're not.
