My heart aches for the 10 innocent children who died as a result of the senseless school shooting last week. I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. Couldn’t help but think that IF the shooter had been taught how to find his inner peace and how to return to it in… Read more »

Can one inner peace habit really change your life?
