Remembering Clyde Hertzman

Dear friends,

     British Columbia, Canada, and the world have lost an outstanding scientist, advocate for children and families, and a creative, fearless and loving human being.  And the Dalai Lama Center has lost a dear friend. As we mourn the loss of Dr. Clyde Hertzman we recognize and appreciate his tremendous inspiration and invaluable support for Dalai Lama Center programs aimed at educating the hearts of children.

Children at the Heart of Things

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.

If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.

If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.

If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.

If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.

If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.

With what is your child living?

Excerpted from Dorothy Law Nolte’s poem “Children Learn What They Live”

Test Survey

Dennis, this is a test survey. 

Perseverance is a choice. It's not a simple, one-time choice. It's a daily one. There's never a final decision.
