COVID is not a memory that can start to fade, but a reality to be addressed forthrightly in the interest of living fully.

Summary: For naysayers who contend that America is too polarized to listen, I suggest reading any of Lincoln’s speeches. Lincoln showed us the way with his words and deeds. ... True leaders speak to all of us, as one country, as one people, as Americans — always reminding us of what that means.
Summary: Just remember that dress codes are about fostering respect, not exclusion. And even the most casual places may post signs saying, "No shoes, no shirt, no service."
Summary: Say the names of the Buffalo victims. Shout them from the hilltops, and the rafters, and the streets. Challenge racism and antisemitism, wherever you see them. But if you say there are things we can’t say, watch out! Someday soon, the censors will be coming for you.

Summary: Here's my suggestion on one way to fight racism. As one who has worked in television most of my professional life, I want to challenge my colleagues to start doing stories on successful, family-oriented and religious African Americans.

Summary: The threats, the crazy distortion of history, the crimes against civilians, the overestimation of his own military's ability: This is a study in delusion that has proven disastrous to those trying to run an actual war, however unjustified. Putin is stuck in the mud of primitive thinking, and Ukraine seems less and less interested in offering him a tow out of his humiliation.
Summary: What we saw in the Biden speech and the White House statement is another attempt to fool the public into believing that the failed policies of the past can be made to succeed if the president repeatedly declares his faith in them.
Summary: While immigration, Critical Race Theory and Black Lives Matter live in the imagination of racists as the source of all that is evil in America, you'd be hard pressed to find even one negative story about GRT in conservative media, despite the fact that GRT-inspired manifestos and their authors have killed more people than CRT on its worse day.
