To Those Whom Much is Taught

There is a quote that says, "To those whom much is given, much is expected." 

One could reframe that in terms of the daily hate that's poured onto transgender people and the awful things that many have had to endure, but not hate as something that causes embitterment, but rather as a form of education in the importance of empathy and kindness:

To those whom much is taught, much is expected. 

I like this. I of all people know what it's like, so I'll do my best to be a compassionate person.

Best wishes for a compassionate day to you, whoever you are and wherever you are.
