Some of the Dalai Lama’s 18 Rules of Life:
  • Take into account that great love and great achievement require risk.
  • Follow the three R’s-Respect for self, Respect for others, Responsibility for all your actions.
  • Open your arms to change but don’t let go of your values.
  • Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
Dozens of Rotarians, Interactors and other volunteers joined dozens of artists giving it “the old college try” – but the weather came out on top and our Street Painting Festival was officially washed out just after noon Saturday. Free food eased some of the disappointment and lots of people were heard to say they’d be back next year.
President Don sent his thanks to all committee members and volunteers for their efforts, especially chairs Kris and Bill David.
President Don asked for a moment of silence in memory of longtime member Addie Luber.

Dr. Pamela High, MD, FAAP, a pediatrician and director of the Children’s Neurodevelopment Center at Hasbro Children’s Hospital, spoke about epigenetics, epi-attached to nurture and genetics-attached to Nature. The age-old question of Nurture vs Nature.
She spoke of the human brain and “use it or lose it”! A child’s experience informs his learning; experiences can alter the brain’s circuitry. She spoke of the three stresses which effect a child—positive, tolerable and toxic and gave examples of each. She spoke about the importance of language and the differences in children brought up in talkative families vs taciturn families.
In the end—It’s 100% Nurture and 100% Nature!!
