Just breathe

Peace is really an interior journey, and many, many peace workers have always known this. Here comes a video featuring children that illustrates very simply and powerfully how you can transform a moment of intense emotion and move on.

Adults rarely do this, do they? They indulge the emotion, let it fester, let it bleed. They watch it grow, and then they aggravate it further. What happens next–aggression and violence–seems natural, but is it really that?

Watch this video, and share it!
