Much of today's education is fundamentally the same as it has been for decades. It teaches us to become something we can work at for the rest of our lives and does little with respect to living a harmonious life.

If it did, common issues such as poor self-esteem, loneliness, impressionability, peer pressure and substance abuse would not only be greatly reduced, we would gain valuable insight as to why they are so abundant in the first place.

We are proposing a new vision for what is currently known as health and physical education class. ‘Life class’ would be a sensible addition and an essential component to a more thorough education. A class that focuses on the ‘whole person’ in order to live life to its fullest, free from what is so vastly abundant today: fear, negativity, worry and self-doubt.

Regardless of how well we were parented as children, when we are young we are impressionable and easily influenced by society and our peers. We have to do more at the source to neutralize fear and strengthen our children’s resilience by emphasizing that they are unique and special with extraordinary potential. What better place is there to start than where our young minds are formed: the education system?

We are encouraged by this invaluable addition to the curriculum. It will stimulate and awaken young people at their core, enabling them to: 1) recognize the interconnectedness of all people, 2) recognize and appreciate what makes each person special and unique, 3) understand that emotions are a result of our dominant thoughts, and 4) develop the power within to create lifelong happiness.

We have a very strong desire to make this ‘life class’ curriculum a reality, but regardless of how powerful our desire is, we can't do this alone! We need to work together to bring this long overdue learning into our primary education system. It all starts with public awareness and promotion.

Please sign and share this petition in support of our children's future!
