Mindfulness for Hope and Healing Part II - WJRT Flint
The water crisis has created a cloud of fear and uncertainty in Flint for residents and children. There is a level of stress for everyone involved. Parents are afraid of what the future may bring for their children. Children have heard they were "poisoned" and have learned to avoid drinking fountains and tap water. We are all aware of the danger of the lead and the need to do everything possible to lessen lead's impact on our children. The Crim also recognizes this as an opportunity to expand a program that is improving grades, behavior and happiness in classrooms. It is decreasing bullying and aggression, increasing compassion and empathy for others and helping students resolve conflict. See story here.
