Compassion: n. sympathy for a lifeform(s) and wanting to and helping in some way
You can empathize with someone’s misfortune and be sympathetic but if you are compassionate then you want and do try to help in some manner.
A sympathy card or spending some time together talking about the misfortune is minimally doing something about it. Your compassion may extend further and you may offer some financial aid or replace a lost item. Offering advice which will prevent future misfortune is also a sign of compassion.
Helping the poor is a sign of compassion and it can be done financially or with personal volunteer work which should be designed to help them get back into the workforce or prevent starvation.
The one area that we must truly show compassion is towards wilderness animals and plants. Stop stealing their real estate and contribute to conservation causes which will hopefully ensure their survival. You may not understand that destruction of wilderness means the destruction of human civilization in the long duration!!!!!!

Sympathy: n. empathy with a lifeform(s)’s misfortune
If it is a death in the family or some permanent irreversible misfortune then the best that you can do is sympathize by sharing a similar misfortune in your life or writing a sympathy card giving emotional support.
In a family situation saying that you feel someone’s pain for misfortune and merely emotionally sympathizing with them is frequently not enough sympathy. You should also follow up with some useful advice and/or caring which will decrease the odds that the misfortune will happen again.
If your offspring gets an F grade then you should give some useful advice on how to avoid it happening again such as with better study or work habits and you may even have to supervise your offspring and check their knowledge of the subject matter before the next test.
Adults should be largely responsible for their own misfortunes in life but even here if you have some useful advice on how to avoid future misfortune then you should spend some of your valuable time giving your best advice on the matter so it doesn’t happen again.
