The roots of the tree

OK, so for starters - how about the benefits of meditation for children? I for one strongly believe that if children take to meditation and learn to bring their attention inside when faced with many of today's issues - from family hardships to school violence - they will grow into stronger adults who are better equipped for life and less prone to the usual traps (drugs, sex, alcohol). Children are at the root of the society. If you want to improve the tree you have to start at the roots. Well, the young kids in Pittsburgh surely seem to enjoy the calm of yoga and meditation!
