Editor's note: Let's face it, the news stinks! So, this week The Daily Prism will seek to bring the sweetness of a rose to each post and feature groups, individuals, and academics devoted to bringing more compassion in to our world. Please read our opinion piece: Nourishing Compassion Seeds
PLANTING HOPE FOR OUR CHILDREN AND OUR WORLDSeeds of Compassion came about through a collaboration of the Kirlin Foundation and the Venerable Tenzin Dhonden to focus world attention on the following:
• Our communities need thoughtful, creative adults who are actively engaged citizens.
• Our global society needs people equipped to communicate across cultures and address differences through understanding and collaborative problem solving.
• These qualities must take root in early childhood.
• When children build from strong foundations emotionally, socially and cognitively, they can develop into compassionate adults.
Seeds of Compassion invites everyone who is passionate about early childhood education to join our movement.
