A compass is a powerful symbol we use today. The famous safari app has a compass as a sign, so does a high-end realty group with the same name. It has become an imagery that we use a lot even in literature and movie. I am thinking of the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie that came out in 2001 with a pirate called Jack Sparrow with a compass whose needle points not toward north but to what he desires most. Of course, we often like such a compass. However, a real compass is a guide to stay “on route” or on track to your destination. The moral compass is a guide to live the right way within a society, helping to work for the greater good.
"Come together, one and all In the giving spirit Gifts abound here great and small Joyously we feel it"
This piece of music ends the movie A Christmas Carol with Jim Carrey, when Ebeneezer Scrooge – completely turned around by his encounters of the three Christmas ghosts – joins his own family in joyful celebration. After Scrooge’s ignorance for his employees and their salaries, his ignorance for the struggles of his society, and his heartless disregard for his own family who invited him over for Christmas, three ghosts show him the meaning of Christmas.
