Today, we honoured Nelson Mandela on his 95th birthday at the YMCA Summer Bridge Program in Dunedin, Florida with 30 kids, ages 5-11.
They drew pictures of "World with Peace" & "World without Peace".
After hearing about Nelson Mandela's life, they came up with many ways they could spread happiness, by being kinder to all people, animals and to the earth & made pledges to do those things. It was very moving. We felt our special peace & beauty inside with hands over hearts.
The kids made an ice cream birthday cake for Nelson Mandela and we sang happy birthday to dear Madiba & blew out candles.
They now all consider him their hero. Memorable!!!
