It’s been 5 hours since the launch of the Charter for Compassion. Some reaction from around the Twittersphere:

@vrimj: This is beautiful and made me cry. I have not read something this humane in a while.

@Deepak_Chopra Please join me in joining the Charter for #Compassion. Please RT & ask others to affirm

@VirginiaMiracle: Karen Armstrong – this is a call for compassionate moderates to become as organized as extremists are

@Lightkin Tears of #compassion in my eyes: Video- the Charter for Compassion is read by a myriad of people: http://tr.im/EPMU
