For a brief period of time, I taught in Ireland in the public system. Since those days, I have developed an admiration for teachers, the difficulty of their task, their significant contribution to the personal development of their students and their impressive commitment.

The world is changing and evolving. This is the time to truly embrace each person in society and allow them to tap into their abilities. Disabilities are not a tragedy; they are a normal part of life. Persons with Disabilities should not be considered charity cases, someone to pity.

I wonder, what are the structural issues that lead us to re-enact unhelpful patterns of the past? What is the underlying blind spot that, if illuminated, could help us to see the hidden structures below the waterline?

Bishops, Leadership Entails Listening!

Bill Dickinson | Posted 11.09.2016 | Religion
Bill Dickinson

We're always listening. Although, I think we prefer talking? For many, talking is so much more self-satisfying. It feels easier. Listening, however, demands selflessness; it requires a commitment to another: their life, their story, their dignity.

Should You Use the Self-Checkout?

Abby Heugel

What should be an easy process -- get in line, scan, pay, leave -- is complicated by the fact that a) machines are machines and b) most people are not in fact smarter than the machine and make me question the whole theory of evolution.

If school disturbances cannot be subdued by teachers, but rather require officers to control them, the climate of a school is bound to be bleak. If students are forced to witness these events in schools, resentment towards law enforcement is bound to form at an early onset.

The Invisible People Without Homes

By outright pretending someone isn't there, we are essentially stripping them of their importance, identity, and humanity. Just to acknowledge the people we pass by on the street could be the beginning of something so much bigger. Even at our worst no one deserves to feel invisible.

America is between mythologies. Gone are the days of a Superpower High Noon. Gone are the days when the biggest is equated with the best. Until recently, part of the glory of America was that it didn't need to know who it was.

Don't get me wrong: The most immoral prisoner has earned his government-sponsored home. Quite thoroughly. But by treating him in an inhumane manner that extends beyond confinement, we too become all too human. We too commit a moral wrong.
