A Daily Lift – May 18, 2020

Good Morning,


I hope that you are doing well and that you had a nice weekend!


Our “lifts” for today:

From Dr. Rajiv Gandhi (CIS)

“I run the Program in Algorithmic and Combinatorial Thinking (PACT) , which is a  program mainly targeted towards high school and college students. For the program this summer, we received an application from a 4th grader. His essay, which I think is very cute, is attached. I have got permission from his mom to share the essay as is.” – Rajiv


From Gladys Gray Lawrence (BE)

“I have found that contemplative practices are a wonderful way to lower anxiety and stress. The following is a link to a favorite of mine. The church is closed but they have provided an online Labyrinth.” – Gladys
