If you want happiness for an hour — take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day — go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year — inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime — help someone else.

A story of love, community, inclusion, and resilience. Watch PBS NewsHour’s report about lifeguards in Greece giving refugees swimming lessons. http://player.pbs.org/viralplayer/3005541587/

I think it’s important for the refugees to enjoy the water. You know, it’s something. They have had traumatizing experiences. Most of them, some of them, if not many of them, can’t swim. I believe these people deserve to have fun and relax, and appreciate the water, you know, the sea, the way we do.
