Stranger Things Pt. 1: How to Have Compassion on Someone We Don't Agree With

We would all probably say that we want to be compassionate people. But what do you do when you don't agree with the person you are trying to have compassion on? In Stranger Things S1E5, the Flea and the Acrobat, the children learn a lesson in compassion as they search for the Hawkins Lab. El manipulates the compass to try to keep them safe but Lucas uncovers her secret and and calls her out causing a fight. Having compassion on each other breaks through the personal conflicts and allows the team to eventually save Will and accomplish their mission.
