David Breaux An American Designer
David Breaux (aka Compassion Guy) is a Stanford University graduate and Davis resident who can be found standing on the southeast corner of Third & C Streets ("Compassion Corner") asking people what their definition of compassion is. He has had a compilation book published with writings from this experience. He hopes that it will be the first of many. [from davis wiki]
