(Not about education but I wanted to get this out there as so many of us have loved ones with cancer. A high school friend of mine does cancer research at Tulane University and they just found out that even low levels of light while sleeping may inhibit breast cancer drugs from working. He also let me know this:
"The Louisiana Cancer Research Consortium has special sleep masks that
we will mail to you for a modest donation of $25 that will help support
our development of this work and a clinical trial.")
Are you raising "nice" kids? I like to think I did.
“Children are not born simply good or bad and we should never give up on
them. They need adults who will help them become caring, respectful,
and responsible for their communities at every stage of their
childhood,” the researchers write.
Last, I hope you can share this with your children (from Rebelle Society - "creatively maladjusted") = Creative Manifesto. It's a list of thoughts about how you live your life fully and creatively. My favorite one:
Hey Frodo, it’s a lonely battle, and we need help taking the ring to Mordor. In this lifehouse, we collaborate, we share and e-hug daily. We can’t do this (or anything) alone. We need each other badly.
The only possible form of existence is co-existence. Beyond our own,
unscripted individual stories, we’re part of a bigger, universal story
to which we add every day with our thoughts and actions. We are
responsible for the course of events and desperate status of our world.
When it comes to technology and communication, we’re at a place of
synergy and synchronicity like never before. It is imperative that we
make a mindful, heartfelt use of it.
What's on your mind?
