The Life Experience School is celebrating its 49th year of peace education!
“The school operates under a non-hierarchical (laissez-faire) style of leadership, similar to a Quaker Meeting in order to highlight the unique gifts and talents of staff and students alike.”
– Lewis Randa, Founder
Throughout the day there is a flurry of activity in many directions here at LES as each person plans their own schedule … and the staff scrabbles at times to help them make it happen. It’s an amazing way of going about each day that is open-ended and imaginative, with each person moving about the day within the context of relationships that are grounded in respect and friendship.
Viewing of Life Experience Day Program Global Pandemics Bereavement Stone at Pacifist Memorial in Sherborn
“May all who view and touch the stone find comfort in placing their loss in a global context, for the human family suffers as one, and heals as one.”
Cambridge Mayor Sumbul Siddiqui
The Global Pandemics Touchstone acknowledges the profound impact of COVID-19, HIV-AIDS, and past pandemics (illness, death, job loss, foreclosures, bankruptcies, suicide, canceled events, etc.); it serves as an expression of gratitude for the extraordinary contributions and sacrifices made by healthcare and essential service workers throughout the world, and it holds the thoughts and prayers of all those who come to it in sorrow and bereavement.
Resting on the restored one-ton carriage, the Global Pandemics Touchstone was situated in several Cambridge, MA locations in the fall of 2020. In the future, it will travel through Massachusetts, to New York City, and to other locations in the United States and throughout the world.
