The Seattle-based group Compassionate Action Network Internationalis hosting events around Western Washington this week for people of all ages and faiths. The events feature a number of authors, leaders and experts aimed at helping spread compassion around the world, one person at a time.

Award-winning author Karen Armstrong, who created the Charter for Compassion with input from people around the globe using one shared website, joined Margaret to talk about what it truly means to be compassionate and why it's so important to spread compassion around the globe now more than ever.
