What I think this means. A nation contains a government and its people. My thoughts were on a nation of people. When people don’t show compassion for weak people. It looks to the outer world the nation is a heartless nation. It makes them look like ugly people.I do believe keeping politics out of the compassion area cause some politicians (Rather Republicans or Democrat, or other parties in the world.) tend for an agenda not heart. And Compassion is from the heart and love for others not politics.
