To honor their children even as they mourn them every day. Avielle was only six when the gunman took her life. I never wanted to know it. But I do want to know Avielle, and I am grateful to her parents for doing the powerful work they do in her name. There are many worthy names and hope-inducing stories that never make it to the news. Instead, we are bombarded with the names of those who do harm—to our children, our towns, our nation. I am a news junkie. I read and watch and listen to those stories.
I feel it is my responsibility to stay informed. Throughout the ages, uninformed, head-in-the-clouds citizens have allowed motivated crazies and hate mongers to rain travesties down on their communities and nations. An informed populous is the bedrock of democracy.
We have to stay awake to the reality of climate change, the erosion of our democracy, racism, sexism, and all the other isms that have been energized by social media, rampant capitalism, and egocentric leadership. If all we do is immerse ourselves in the stories of bad people doing bad things to each other and the planet, we will sink under the weight of a lopsided story. We will feel alone and outnumbered when really, there are so many beautiful, kind, and creative people doing wildly imaginative and brave things at this very moment.
This is why I try to eat a balanced news meal every day. You may have to search for the hopeful stories, but they are hiding in plain sight. You will have less time for the nasty stories, the mean-spirited ones, the destructive ones. And you will not want to fill your mind with violent television shows and movies that are really glorified shoot-em-up video games.
You will get tired of superheroes that continue to meet violence with more violence. You will want to know the names of a different kind of superhero. Let me share with you a few of those names.
