Thank you @MrDanZak and @sundaylongread “Disorientation is a side effect of grappling with reality and one’s place in it. The best kind of journalism disorients, then orients. It shows you what you’ve missed, misunderstood or ignored, then sends you in a truer direction. 1/2

Amy Acton’s message — that kindness shouldn’t be mistaken for weakness — was evident every time she spoke, and so many in Ohio have missed her soothing strength. I’m so glad to hear her voice again through the words of @williams_paige. Her lived message is the tonic we all need.
Dr. Amy Acton famously led Ohio thru the early pandemic, then resigned after demonstrators w/guns showed up at her home. She went dark—till now. NEW, as COVID-19 surges: Acton on bipartisan leadership, resiliency, and public health as national security newyorker.com/news/us-journa…

Thanks for the invitation and for the extremely insightful questions. It means the world to the families that these stories continue to be told.
These are the moments in education that students remember for life. Thank you @jimsheeler for your generosity in visiting THS!

Thanks tons to Jeff Owen for including Final Salute as a required text in his Troy (Ohio) High School sophomore English class. Thanks even more for inviting me to meet the students in person. His students weren’t born when the wars started, but they will keep the stories alive.

Lady just yelled "fake news" at me from her car. I'll try not to let my bias get in the way for this story about a gator crossing a street.
