Temporary pain, long lasting compassion

I tap my chest to release the gases caught there by my recent surgery. It’s only now that I understand the pain of my nine-year-old friend who thrashes back and forth in his wheelchair until a burp finally erupts and he can sit back at ease. 

My pain is temporary but my compassion will be long-lasting.
