Thanks to everyone who submitted an original postcard design. They are fantastic! We will add a note on each postcard about the class initiative and it would be wonderful to include quotes from youth. You can send quotes to Tracy at email@example.com or add them to the notes section under your slide. Complete this sentence: It is important to me that you vote because____________.
YOUTH: submit your postcard designs HERE by Thursday evening.
Also, send your quotes. Friday, we send postcards off to be printed.

Recognize what is happening
Allow the experience to be there, just as it is
Investigate with interest and care
Nurture with self-compassion
It's a wonderful mindfulness technique for our children and youth to learn. You can read Rev. Meredith's sermon HERE. Or, listen to his sermon HERE - part 1 begins at 18:36 and part 2 begins at 51:35. Tara Brach offers several related resources HERE.
