Peace in Your Heart

October 25th, 2012

10-25-12Heading south to Philadelphia, I passed through Lawrenceville, New Jersey. I know of an incredible private school that I had been invited to visit. Having a limited amount of time, I pulled The Kindness Bus onto the campus of Lawrenceville School. The warm reception I received was typical of this nurturing environment. Even with the upcoming Parent’s Weekend, Betty Cornell from the Dean’s Office took time to meet with me even though I had shown up unannounced. This place is a first-class act!
There is a sure fire way to eliminate bullying and suicide from our society; having peace in your heart.
Today I visited the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine Hospital to talk with Gregory K. Brown, Ph.D. Research Associate Professor Department of Psychiatry and Kelly L. Green, Ph.D. NRSA Postdoctoral Fellow to discuss the nuances of talking with those who converse with me about bullying and suicide. I wanted to discuss saying what needs to be said and how to listen to those I talk with. Lending a kind ear and speaking words of hope are ways to get a person to open up and share their feelings.
I spent the remainder of the afternoon engaging many students and individuals in conversation about bullying and suicide.
