A new bailout...

By Vichara

With all of the rescue packages being proposed in the financial sectors of the world, there is another plan that needs to be formulated that is equally as important. We need a compassion bailout. And who is going to fund this bailout; you and I. We all have the ways and means to make an impact. As always this time of the year calls for us to give presents and to be more forgiving to those around us all because of certain date on the calendar. I think there is a need to look beyond these singular calendar dates and forge a movement in our individual hearts to react and to act in giving to others not just by gifts paid for by plastic, but given through compassion. Incorporate this in our daily live and everyday thoughts. A bailout of hope, a bailout of mutual support. A bailout of believing that we can make a difference, even in a small way.

dragoon • \druh-GOON\ • verb
1 : to subjugate or persecute by harsh use of troops
2 : to force into submission or compliance especially by violent measures

Example Sentence:
Boys of all ages were taken from their families and dragooned into fighting for the rebel armies.

Did you know?
A dragoon was a mounted European infantryman of the 17th and 18th centuries armed with a firearm called by the same name. No arm-twisting should be needed to get you to believe that the firearm's name, which came to English from French, is derived from its semblance to a fire-breathing dragon when fired. History has recorded the dragonish nature of the dragoons who persecuted the French Protestants in the 17th century, during the reign of Louis XIV. The persecution by means of the dragoons led to the use of the word "dragoon" as a verb.
