Creating Sanctuary

Submitted by: Roy Kearse, VP of Residential Treatment, Samaritan Village


I want to tell you something that's really sensible

It's about adopting SANCTUARY and its Seven Principles.


I have suddenly got a real yearning

To increase my knowledge of social learning.


I'm also asking everyone to increase their ability

When it comes to practicing social responsibility.


You may ask, how can we do both?

Well that comes from learning and growth.


Tell the truth, don't engage in hypocrisy

Open things up by creating an environment of democracy.


Don't be resistant or practice belligerence

Learn to exercise emotional intelligence.


Open your mouth and break the silence

This is one way to promote nonviolence.


If you do this we will increase everyone's education

And hopefully this will create better communication.
