Writer/director Gary Ross (The Hunger Games) has brought his ten-year project to life and his efforts have culminated in a history lesson that is surprising and confounding on many levels.

I Am Mad

My partner often questions why I watch the news if it makes me so mad. Because it is important for me to know what is going on around me. I do not want to be deaf and blind to ignorance or violence, even if the shrill blare and horrendous images are painful.

Race plays a significant role in how violence is framed for the public. And though such framing may begin informally in conversation or in popular media, it persists in what our children are taught in school and affects the way we understand each other.

Is One Good Congress Too Much to Ask?

I wonder what Jefferson would think of our Congress today, or of the voters who tolerate it. I wonder what it would feel like to be proud of our government again.

Since I'd snapped at her, we decided I should get a timeout. I congratulated myself on the creative parenting while she paused at the door. Her eyes were wet. "I won't close it," she said. "I don't want you to be scared."

If a ticket of two women offers economic revival and transformational change based on financial justice championed by Pope Francis, the most popular figure on the world stage, support from women would be stratospheric and many men would join them.

Kelly M. Flanagan

Our families are where we first learn how to say "No" in a safe, supportive environment. If we don't learn to do so there, we won't learn to do so anywhere. If our children can't say "No" to us, they won't say it to anyone.

Miley may think she is a bursting out of chrysalis right about now. But I think she is wrapping herself up in silk as I type. Forming a cocoon of lies and falsehoods of youthfulness and indiscretion. And you know what, this is so cool. More power to her.
