I usually do not post anything; however, this is worth a share. My grandchildren and their classmates ( ages 4 to 11 ) spent half a day at a local long-term care facility. These children read, sang, and played games as they held the hands of the elders with total devotion and unconditional love. They were mindful at all times. A proof of their being empathetic rather than sympathetic and I am delighted that the St Lawrence Academy is bringing up children with these values.
Spending undivided and unconditional time with elders in retirement homes can light up their days!
