Good teachers teach more than just their content; they teach civility as well. They teach the next generation how to interact with one another, even if they disagree politically.
The European Union is desperate to keep immigrants outside its borders, which essentially means keeping them in Turkey and paying any price for it.
Born and raised in Belgium, I have a bias. I went to the United States in 1996 to lead the NYSE's research and international departments and I became a U.S. citizen in 2009. After the Paris attacks, an insidious attempt to blame Belgium for the attacks struck me as (at best) ill-informed.
The Obama Administration plans to ask the Supreme Court to review the decision on the deferred action programs. This move cannot come quickly enough. While the case is tied up in the courts, we must continue the fight for equity for immigrant families on all fronts.
When it comes to the challenge to President Obama's executive action on immigration, Texas is trying to run out the clock. Luckily for the Administration and for the five million individuals whose lives are in limbo, there really is no clock.
The refugee crisis in Europe is rapidly changing the political landscape. Tense political relationships are further pressured by the recent, rapid inc...
Native American vestments draped over his 2015 business suit, Ohlone descendant Andrew Galvan, whose ancestral lands encompass the San Francisco Bay area, smiled broadly at the 400+ paying guests at a recent event in San Francisco.
Thanksgiving -- at least in the form we celebrate it in this country -- is an American invention, and also a holiday about each of our relationships to America.
Donald Trump's toxic comments about immigrants and women are completely counter to the spirit of my late husband Gene Kelly. Not only would Gene be appalled by Trump's deplorable words and actions, he would be stricken that such depravity could be tolerated in a race for President of the United States.
Both the War on Terror and the War on Drugs have created larger problems than they have solved, and have been exploited for aims other than the stated objectives of stopping acts of terror and the flow of drugs.
Thanksgiving is a time when American families living under the terrifying threat of deportation will gather. We know that pilgrims were immigrants, too. We know how to bake a turkey until it's golden and go nuts when our team gets a key first down. Like I said, American families.
Today, we are faced with the same choice we have confronted in the past -- whether to give into fear and prejudice or align ourselves with our highest ideals.
Perhaps your tradition has been to share what you have gratitude for, be it individual or part of a bigger picture. How about switching it up and talk...
Throughout history, we haven't always reciprocated generosity, as seen by how we've treated our native neighbors. That shouldn't preclude us from giving thanks to them now, and from continuing to be welcomers ourselves.
I've never had the privilege of visiting Idaho so I can't say that I know you. I don't know your specific fears or experiences and I would never presume to minimize or dismiss them. All I can say is that we're all Americans, and we share the ability to talk to each other with an open mind and an open heart.
I was thirteen when 9/11 happened, just a few weeks into the start of the eighth grade. The series of events that that horrifying incident put into action are still playing out to this day, 14 years later.
