Video: “To prepare our kids for this world, we must educate the heart.”

After Newtown, we’re all naturally in a state of heightened concern about kids’ safety and welfare at school. So, we’re happy to share this lovely new video made by creative agency Giant Ant for the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education, which runs programs to teach children about compassion, acceptance, and tolerance.

“To prepare them for this world, we must educate the heart,” the video explains. “We need to teach them compassion, acceptance, and tolerance. This can begin in our schools, and it can begin today.”
