If the video doesn’t play, click here to watch it. Our thanks to Louie Schwartzberg for sharing this wonderful talk at TEDx San Francisco.
We love it, and we’re not alone. It’s been watched over 4.5 million times!
Have you (and your young people) make a list of what you are grateful for. What are you grateful for about yourself? About others? About the earth?
Share your gratitude lists out loud.
Can you make a giant list of everything you’re all grateful for? How big a list can you create? It’s an easy and meaningful activity to do with your family or a class!
