If she can forgive, so can I

Last week I saw an interview with Yann Arthus Bertrand. He spent 2 years filming 2000 people from 65 different countries.

My colourful life

It helps them to deal with the shootings and fights. And it makes them feel safer. What’s more, since the daily meditations have been introduced, pupils have started to perform much better. The number of pupils who have been expelled has dropped by 45%. As many as 20% of the pupils are now admitted to a well-known high school while it hardly ever happened before!”
