Today is the birthday of Mohatma Gandhi, India’s spiritual and political leader in the early 1900s. He helped India win independence from Great Britain through a policy of nonviolent civil disobedience, a policy imitated in the 1960s by Martin Luther King, Jr. Today I attended a community Anti-Bullying Rally and the Superintenent of Freeport (Long Island) public schools led us in a wonderful meditation. Be Peace!
The meditation was about creating and sustaining inner peace and joy so that we can weather storms around us without “losing it” . The rally was in beautiful Zion Cathedral , the meditation a bit unusual and totally appropriate given by an educator and community leader. The rally-morning was even more special coming on the heels of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashonah, that is very meditative, and of course full of prayers for peace.
My colleagues Richard Kebanoff and Jordan Silver are currently producing the documentary “BULLYCIDE: The voice of Complicity that I am proud to be having a small interview in as a certified anger management specialist.
