Ten Breaths for Oakland's recent losses...

Suggest as you read this you pause, reflect on a focus of your gratitude, and take ten slow breaths, filling yourself with loving kindness and compassion for yourself and for those who may be grieving the many recent losses in Oakland.

Annette Miller - steadfast McClymonds parent, fighting for better schools for all children, lost her son to gun violence last week.

A kindergarten teacher, Sara Hoda, at Urban Montessori charter school, is among the confirmed losses within the Oakland Fruitvale warehouse fire Friday night. Every loss that evening equally tragic. (Silke Bradford is coordinating support with OUSD's crisis response team for the school.)
