Wow! What energy and spirit these 350 grade 6-9 students of Notre Dame school in Medicine Hat had thus morning! I did a boom whacker drum circle as a kick off to their day of mental health. Three things I know for sure: 1. Our youth are our greatest resource. 2. Depression and mental illness is on the rise. 3. They need support, compassion and mentors to succeed.
Drum circles build confidence, release stress and lift spirits! They are one tool in their Spiritual tool belts! Be kind to teenagers. They are our future.
Peace. Judy messenger of joy
