"Really want to focus on under land. Which is your your newest book And also i think a book that people are discovering in this country in in a big way which has been exciting to see That use that as kind of a focal point to also more expansively explore. How you're thinking accumulated way of seeing the world and experiencing it rolls around inside you. And i feel like that also does find expression in in the writing of land so And it's always. It's so interesting to see how. I think you said it this way some in another interview that your body of work. The gradient of your body of work has been tending down because she began writing about mountain mountains of the mind. And then there were the values in moore's in wild places and then there's traversing the world on foot in the old ways and now you have gone down to the world's beneath our feet and you said we know so little of the world's beneath our feet i think just naming that not something that we even think about how little we know of the world's beneath our feet they.

"krista" Discussed on On Being with Krista Tippett
"Stupendous to conceive of life evolving over billions of years from the first reproducing biological molecule into the diversity of life that impacts this whole plan somewhere. You says the you called us. A primordial mixture of hydrogen helium that evolves for so long that it begins to ask where it came from. It sounds right which which can sound like a diminishing but actually it's just an extraordinary thought. Yeah i mean no other species on the planet today can use its senses and its tools to understand that long cosmic evolution and where we came from and it. It's astonishing that life would eventually produce something that could study the cosmos and wonder about where we came from well. This has been a beautiful extraordinary conversation.

Naomi Shihab Nye Shares Why Kindness Is The Deepest Thing Inside You
"Naomi. shehab nice. Childhood unfolded between ferguson missouri. Near where her mother grew up and her father's palestinian homeland. Our conversation in two thousand sixteen spoke to so much that he's even more alive in the world. Now i always start my interviews by inquiring about the religious or spiritual background of someone's tighted and i just wonder where you'd start reflecting on what that was in your life all. I felt very lucky as a child to have open minded parents. And i knew they were open minded because they were unlike any other parents. I met my friends parents I also knew that they didn't practice the religions of their upbringings. Either one of them so this fascinated me as even a little child. And i would ask a lot of questions. There was no sense of a taboo subject on. My father had not really had a difficult time telling his family that he didn't want to practice islam. He said i will respect it. But i don't want to practice it and they had accepted that my mother's family on the other hand had been more hard hearted about her rejection of their german lutheran missouri. Synod background but this was something. Both of my parents. Talk about with each other and with their children. You know that people are raised in all kinds of different ways. And if it doesn't feel a meaningful to you maybe you have to search more. You have to keep searching. And i was a religion major in college. Of course you work. Because of my appetite for this topic and i was fascinated to study more about zen buddhism which appealed to me very much from the beginning and it seems like hugh became a writer at a very young inch. You're like seven six. I was six. When i started writing my own poems and seven when i started sending them out and And just today Some students i was talking to a skype class in kuwait. How much. I love the modern world that we can do these things. I was with these students for two hours. And i feel like i'm going to think about them for the rest of my life but one young man asked me. How were you brave enough to do that. What gave you the confidence. he said. i've been trying to run a publication here at our university campus. And i can't get my friends to give me their writing. They're not brave enough. What gave you confidence. And i think just having you know that sense of voice while other people have done it. That's what we do if you know words if you compose wanna share them. Because they'll have a bigger life if you do that so you know. I certainly wasn't thinking about a career. Just thought of myself as having a practice you know if you have a practice of writing then you have a lot of pieces of paper on your desk and you can share the if you chose to. And it seemed more exciting or illuminating. Share them and see what happened next than just keep for myself. So i'm very interested in general in this question of you know what poetry works in us but i think even that question itself hasn't holds the implication that poetry is something separate something distinct but it seems that in your sensibility. You see it. As very organic i mean there's i think it was in in some of your writing for poems by children. He said i do think that all of us think in poems i do i do think that and i think that is very important enough feeling separate from text feeling sort of your thoughts as text or the world as it passes through you as a kind of text the story that you would be telling to yourself about the street even as you walk down or as you drive down as you look out the window the story you would be telling a. It always seemed very much to me as a child that i was living in a poem. The my life was the poem. In fact at this late date i have started putting that on the board of any room. I walk into. That has a board Came back from japan a month ago and every classroom. I would just write on the board. You are living in a poem. And then i would write other things just relating to whatever. We were doing that class. But i found the students very intrigued by discussing that you know. What do you mean. we're living in a poem or win all the time or just when someone talks about poetry and i'd say no when you think when you're in a very quiet place when you're remembering when you're savoring an image when you're allowing your mind calmly to leap from one thought to another. That's a poem. That's what a poem does and they liked that and grow in. Fact wrote me a note In yokohama on the day that i was leaving her school that has come to be like the most significant note. Any student has written me in years. She said well here. In japan we have a concept called you todi and it is spaciousness. It's a kind of living with spaciousness for example like it's leaving early enough to get somewhere so you know you're going to arrive early so when you get there you have time to look around. Or whether she gave all these different definitions of what you tori was to her but one of them was an after you read a poem just knowing you can hold it you could be in that space of the poem and it can hold you in its space and you don't have to explain it you don't have to paraphrase it. You just hold it and it allows you to see differently. And i just love that i mean. I think that's what i've been trying to say all these years.
Flood Insurance changes are on the way
"So we have a home that is not in a flood plain but we have flood insurance and so you may think i'm out of my mind but the deal is we live by two minor. Creeks they come together on our property and they continue enduring heavy rains which can occur in the spring. The creek can start to look like a pretty menacing thing. Thank goodness more than ten years. Living where we do we've had not even close to a flood in our house and we had anything it would just hit our basement. But because we're not in a flood plain in our risk is so exceedingly low. The premium is extremely low. A few hundred dollars a year and now our premiums after a reset coming later this year or almost certainly going down for our flood insurance because our risk profile is extremely low but the coverage i get is up to two hundred and fifty thousand dollars in reality for any damage only occurred to our basement. Then the coverage is essentially twenty-five thousand but again the premium is so low that in the extremely unlikely event that it would happen it would still be worth it. Krista we talked years about what happened to you. There was such a devastating personal and financial experience. When you're home suffered a major flood in two thousand nine. Yeah attack in your area. Ten thousand homes were heavily damaged or destroyed by those floods. And were in a situation with your home where you were in a flood plain but you had a relatively minor creek behind your home and if i remember crummy where i'm wrong. There were twenty two inches of rain and fifteen hours. Is that and then. The sewer backed up into the creek which was really another bonus and your house became. It looked like literally looked like a houseboat. And i remember you and your husband. Mike where on your tenth anniversary tram came back landed and i'm with you at the curb looking at your house. Is tears rolling down your face and you see water just going through your home and that was a brutal experience. The power of water is amazing. But i'll say i. I'm glad that happened to us. Ultimately for me personally only because i found how lucky i was and i had people like you and other people my life who were so good to us and we didn't know what the finances we're going to be like after but we were we were totally fine and Thank goodness had the means to get back in and And take care of things and then what did for me. Was you know when you have a flood. They take all the stuff out and then it gets thrown into dumpsters and everything you have to tear it apart. If you have the kind of damage we had and just seeing all that material stuff It didn't mean anything to me. There were just a couple of sentimental things that matter and so it's really changed my perspective in a positive way. Well that's why you're you that you looked at what was a brutal experience at that time where you were having trouble even sleeping and you now look canada's a positive event most people don't look at a flood is a positive life event and there are because of development patterns in urban and suburban areas of we so overwhelmingly urbanize all across the major metros of the country. We lose a lot of vegetation a lot of areas of tree cover. It increases the flooding risk. Then you layer on top of that. The issues from climate change in so we are seeing increasing flooding activity. And that's why a lot of homes that that may be in a position where yeah they're not gonna flood plain but there's a good possibility the your home could see an invasion of water even though it's not on the flood maps. This would be something you should look at. And see what kind of premium you'd face at fled smart dot gov
A new way to invest that doesn't involve buying stocks hyped on Reddit
"So lately. All the buzz his been about well. Bitcoin and other crypto currencies. Bitcoin recently fifty thousand dollars a bitcoin and people who've been buying the stocks that are being touted on read it and it was all that mess that went on with Game stop and other stocks. That went up like rockets and then like rockets can do crash back down to earth and my son is in this investing group at school. He's fifteen and they're investing not real money but they all have their stock portfolios and wanna read you to texts from him from this morning. They're really funny. Is said in the last nineteen minutes. My stock portfolio dropped by six sixty. Then he texts me eight minutes later and these eh. then it went up by eight hundred dollars. And i the other night. When he was trapped. In the car with me i started boring. I'm trying to talk about how my philosophies investing work very differently than matt worrying about day trading and options and all. That was going to happen up to the minute and if you thought a father could be more irrelevant to sun then i was that minute you you couldn't be no interest in anything i was saying because to him. This is sport and that's what investing has been of late call. Investing is really speculating. And that's not my thing. I mean i'm the dulles person alive and i invest in a dull way because the ideas i wanna make money over time and so. That's why i get excited about really accessible. Investing opportunities for small investors did allow you to build reasonable wealth over time instead of trying to get the quick score and my son's a sharp kid hill. Eventually get it and will not that. It matters what you're buying and selling minute by minute. And by the way he's asked me if he can have a real investing account. Will you know you'd have to have what's called a custodial said yeah yeah where where you were the pretend owner but i'm the one doing the investing and i don't know what to do you know. Give them a couple of hundred dollars and let him play. And maybe learn the value of term investing. But you know it fifteen. What is long term. That's like three days from now. It's hard to explain a concept where you build wealth over time well do you know goldman sachs is goldman sachs is for rich people like crista. People was massive amounts of money. Who work with a personal financial manager. Who handles their money for them. That's right krista. That's what you do with your millions. Yeah no no okay. So there are. There are very wealthy people. That's what they do and goldman sachs has been doing some stuff lately that doesn't fit at all their historical pedigree They're the ones that issue the apple card for people that have the apple credit card and they have Savings accounts and all that kind of thing with no minimums will now. They've launched some cold. Marcus invest which allows people to use goldman sachs incredible financial analysis investment analysis till build robo investing portfolios for you using very low cost funds. And this is something you would ask somebody. Ten years ago if goldman sachs would ever being looking to provide investments an investment advice to everyday ordinary. People they'd say you're crazy. That will never happen. Well they're not doing what fidelity investments does where a dollar is enough to open an account many cases schwab one hundred dollars. They're doing what vanguard. Does you have to have a thousand bucks to open an account but once you have that thousand you can get advice that is tailored to your personal financial goals and outlook. The money can be and a retirement account or an investment account use what are known is exchange traded funds. Etf's and typically for the advice and the investments you pay roughly a third of a percent per year for them to handle your money. So i guess ten thousand dollars be thirty five bucks a year. Is that right. I think that's about right. three dollars. Fifty cents on a thousand. I think that's right so this is an opportunity for you to do. Investing through the nation's big boys big money houses and their whole business plan is pretty similar to what you'd have if you were with Betterment or wealth front that really started this whole investing idea. And i'm sure neither of them are very happy the goldman sachs through. Marcus invest is playing in their ballpark.

Let's start talking on the air because i'm afraid we might venture territory that maybe we shouldn't but anyway well i'm ready when you are okay. All right no. I just i i actually don't i don't think it's completely unrelated to what we're speaking in terms of in terms of you know human dynamics purely human diagnose under surface which is on the political surface looking pretending to be something else. That's very interesting. Is this going out Soon or in a long time. We'll just kind of sense of times this one. We are planning to turnaround turnaround critic quickly. Think now i'm just looking behind the glass. I think we're doing it for valentine's day. Goodness okay that makes yeah so very soon. Okay right now. So we're excited now. Just give me a sense of you know how topical or not to be. Yeah well you know we. We try to do everything Return to step back from you. Know what is just merely momentary anyway so Let's have a big conversation you know. Don't worry one much too much. All these things you know these these are gonna be with us for a while to well. That's true but but people get fed up and it's good to give them company. Yeah well what happened. That's what you do so well thank you. I mean what happened. Twenty minutes ago is going to be covered in a million ways. And and yeah. We'd people want people. I mean that's what you're working at two elevating And also deepening Okay so chris good all right great. Then let's just. Let's just digging so so. We did speak a few years ago but on a on a very different topic and i'm Really Excited to be speaking you with you about this subject which is So close to every life. And i you know as i as i've prepared for this i just have realized that you've actually i mean i knew that you'd written the novel on love a long time ago. But you've really been consistently attending to this subject and building your thoughts on it in your body of work on. It was really interesting to me. I mean you wrote on love at the age of twenty three Which is so young. And you're already thinking about this. So deeply i mean. There's i think this is the first line. Every fall into love involves the triumph of hope over in homage. So just kind of curious as we start about You know always. I was start my conversations. Whatever talking about about talking with the background of someone's childhood and you know you you've you have spoken and written about your childhood is one that had a emotional deprivation and there was a lot of trauma actually in exile in your in your parents lives. But how do you you know. What would you say about in the background of your life. You know you learned and internalized about love and marriage which made this at such a young age such a deep subject for you. I think that's one of the things that parents nice parents try to keep from that children is that life is in many ways. Bleak lonely and Brief and i think these are the sort of horrific truths that children are. Shielded from what we call a difficult childhood. Is i think one in which for whatever reason Some of these adult insights come a little bit too early. Perhaps when one's not ready. Then i think that anyone who's had that sort of childhood will react with in some way They will be an element of needing to go back and redeem something atoned for something Patch something up and for me. You know i became a writer. I think in order to try and understand emotional life in a way that when i was a child emotional motions Tub to me. And i think that you know when people say why did you become a writer and intellectual etc Can almost just have a very basic on. So which is it was a way of coping. i'm one of those people and you know there are many of us out there right when something goes wrong Was the first thing they want to do. They want to be alone. Probably with some paper and a pen and write stuff down and they may not even want have any aspirations to publish anything. It's just the most soothing calming redeeming thing you can do. And that for me. Was the origin of writing long before they were was such. A book publisher. There was the need to write because writing was consoling calming by interpreting emotions. I got a handle on them. And they seemed less threatening less Alienating that's hurtful
Gamestop and the future of the stock market
"Game stop became this populist uprising that went across the political spectrum what i learned from the game. Stop mania was that. There's a lot of anger and resentment in america towards the wall street elites and people thought it was just awesome that these really rich fat cats were whining that they were losing billions to ordinary investors. And that's cool but the thing about investing is that there's been a separation in people's minds between the real value of accompany the value of its stock. You know the thing that got set off on it and when my fifteen year old son every day gives me a report on what's going on on the red at boards and what they're saying about this company or that when what they're saying about silver whatever it is and it's this Investing by kind of an ad hoc committee the problem. I have for you and your wallet is if you're just playing with some money that's fine but if you're putting money that you actually are going to need to live on or for your long term financial security know that what's involved in what's being posted on. Reddit are not real investing strategies. I mean you are investing but you're really more engaging in speculation or gambling and it's cool when it works but what happens when a company ends up way beyond its actual real value is there are people who on the roller coaster ride up if they buy it the right exact second sell at the right exact second. They're doing awesome but the people who bought from them when the roller coaster takes scary ride back down. They're the ones who get their wallets cleaned out. And i think that this reminds me a lot of something that happened to generation ago before many people that are investing robinhood. Were even alive. Or we're just young babes and diapers. Hopefully their parents buying generic diapers instead of brand name but whatever that we went through something called the dot com crash where values ninety eight and ninety nine went through the roof for companies that had never made a penny and the more money. They lost the higher their stocks went up and they were all what are known as story stocks and the way those stories ended. They weren't like bedtime stories with happy endings. They were really ugly with companies lost huge amounts of investors money in the billions and what was similar to. What's been going on lately with trades in stocks of unloved companies. Suddenly go way up and then take their right back down. What was consistent. Then that is again happening now. Is that overwhelmingly. The people that were doing this were investors that were smaller. Investors and in cases were borrowing money that they couldn't afford to lose one of the things that's been going on this time also happened in ninety eight ninety nine and that is that people were borrowing on what's knows margin in order to place bigger positions and then when a stock starts its fall. You get hit with a margin call which is where you have to pay off your loan. Basically in a nanosecond. If you don't have the money your whole position is sold out and wiped out so this is something that is not for the faint of heart because as we saw back when the ninety eight ninety nine mania ended in two thousand. We had a massive decline in the stock market. That took many many many years to recover from there are conditions today that somewhat mirror that and so think about investing is something you're doing for a long time or a lifetime not for today's hot stock hot precious metal. Whatever it is if you have money that's your play money. You want to play these games. Go for it on the other hand. If it's money you really really gotta have. This is too hot to handle and you'll get burned bad in the kitchen and krista. You're with me in way back in nineteen ninety nine. I was a song also right And was more salvatori than what what happened with with the stock market it was. It was really something that that people that were financial analysts. Just were shaking their heads. They couldn't understand how these stocks back. Then we're going up and up and up and up which they did until they didn't and when the airline out of the balloon it was fast you know we. We talked about our fifteen year. Old sons When you talked about this on another episode. But i'll have to give you an update. That mind. got his dad to buy him. He gave his dad some cash. And got him to buy a stock. That was another speculative one from read it that he had seen and he is now lost like seventy percent of the money. He gave us that. So i think it was a really good lesson for him. Only a good lesson if people don't just go away and say investing is not for them. Yeah no he's still thinks he's pretty smart. You do have a very smart son. The thing is i. Don't want people if they get burned through this wave of red and aspire mania To not turn away from investing. Say that it's just not worth it. It's too risky. Whatever that's why you have to think widely diversified and term not a single stock. That you're gonna own hours or days. And i know the i've said it again and again i am the dullest human being alive and see. You're nodding your head is incorrect. It is true. Oh no. I'm extremely dull and my philosophies about investing or extremely dull and so i want you to have financial security and you know what if people are having fun getting animated and talking to each other about this trading symbol or that one or whatever. And what's going to happen with this one or that one. No that i would be the person that would put you to sleep talking about how you build. A portfolio with index funds or in a retirement account with the target retirement fund. Because what i'm about you ending up with a real financial wealth real financial security over time. Not the quick

Also have some great news for you on health insurance. If you have suffered a job loss. So i wanna talk to you about the game. Stop thing It's quite a buzz right now. My i knew that this had really taken off my fifteen year. Old son wanted me to explain to him. What the deal was with game. Stop because he's looked at game. Stop is just a has been loser for a long time. You know they've closed tons of stores. There's stores that are still open. What kind of Sad rundown and. It's something that time seems to have passed by but the value of game stock dame stop has climbed game stop stock as climbed climbed and climbed and climbed and you may have heard some of the reporting about how this was really fueled on read it and how elon musk was saying. Hey buy game stock. It's going to the moon. What about spacex. Aren't they going to the moon or mars or something anyway so this is become a mania and it's been the revenge of very young investors and so they have been bidding up the stock and it's been people doing so in very small purchases huge numbers of people and game stock really doesn't have a lot of intrinsic market value wall street insiders big time money people have been playing a game called selling the stock shore which you may have heard the expression. Last few days it's a financial maneuver where you're heading that you can buy a stock today. You can borrow a stock today and then find the borrowing shares later at lower prices. It's called shorting a stock and that was probably a terrible explanation or definition but the idea is the big money crowd on wall street had been betting on the extinction of game stop and then what the small investors have done. Why do people in their teens and twenties is they've been doing the opposite. They've been pushing the value of game. Stop up and then people who would bat on the shares dropping had to do what's called unwind their positions by shares of inflating stock price. And as they buy more that pushes the price up in order to close out their positions and limit their losses. It has nothing to do with the actual real value of game. Stop. there's also been happening with Remember they used to be the hottest device. People carried a blackberry with. There's also been happening with their stock and think about five or six others where on message boards people are saying. Hey let's run. This went up and they've been doing it now. Generally when people collude. That is an illegal activity but this is not traditional private collusion. These are individuals stating on message boards and as best as securities. Laws work. Today as i understand them. It's not at all illegal but the reality is these stocks that are being pushed up. Have none of the intrinsic value that the market suddenly is saying they're worth in so this will in where these usually end with. A bubble is the value of these stocks are going to deflate so it is what they call in investing theory the greater fool. Who is the last one standing. Who rides it all the way down. You don't wanna be you being the one who has to say coulda woulda shoulda sold earlier and i wanna know from joe and krista have either view been fighting the shorts on any of these stocks. I have not. But i have to take clark my fifteen year old son last night sent me a text while it was already in bed and said what's my social security number and i was like well. Why do you wanna know that. And he said. I'm opening a robin hood account. And i was like you can't fifteen. He was like. I want to do it anyway and he wanted to. He wanted to get in on the stock trading. And he's like one or two open an account with your name and social security number now like -lutely not so i'm definitely gonna play this this Make him listen to the segment of the podcast. So our fifteen year olds are really end to this. I know they shouldn't hang out together and start start their own little investing company. Joel your oldest child is six five seven. Seven is your seven year old wanting to open a robin hood account now. This isn't on her radar yet. But that's definitely a sign of the times though right i mean when when things get this outta whack this crazy with certain specific stocks and so much relation Even the younger kids like are just like anybody can get rich in the stock market. Let's do it and yeah. I think you're right. This is right. It's got them interested. But what. I worry about a good point but what i worry about is this is nineteen ninety. Nine all over again. When a bunch of younger small investors got hyped up on all the original what we now call the dot bomb stocks and ended up losing all that money and then forward were senecal when untrusting of distrusting untrusting distressing of investing and. So the reality is i hold to my dole thing. I'm a dull person that with investing. You always start core. You always start really wide with dullsville where you own a large swath of the stock market for the long haul and then on the edges of that was called explore. If you wanna do stuff like this which is investing. That's really gambling. Then go right ahead but never batting the real money you need for your future on
interview With Nikki Giovanni
"Of the most striking things that just jumped out at me all the way through your writing and and writing about you and all the way to the latest volume of poetry published in two thousand thirteen is how from the very beginning you were held and cherished and taught by courageous loving women Your mother you were named your first name as yulon right yeah. It used to be when when mommy passed i I had it legally changed the nikki. Just because that's what everybody knows me. I would have never done when mommy was here. I wouldn't. I wouldn't want her to think i didn't want to carry her name. I'm rhonda junior. So how old were were you when you change your name legally ben mommy's been dead ten years so sixty two something like that sixty three years old. And how do you say your grandmother's name. Lavinia lavinia lavinia lavinia. Emma lou watson. Also that you were all sounds like foodies before the the word had been invented. Oh grandmother was a foodie and grandmothers. Friends were foodi. And of course i ended up. Living with grandma not ended up but Was was fortunate to live with grandmother. so mommy was a good cook because she was grandmothers daughter and My on an was a good cook Living with grandmother And i learned all of their tricks. My favorite was of course greens. And i'm still still still working on that because working making greens is one of life's difficulties. Just clean them and stuff. Well mommy mom and grandmother to you pull than to tie the stems and you put the leaves in and he uses stems to flavor and then you pull it out and so she was very good at that but the other thing. I was laughing and laughing about this. You didn't ask him about this. But in grandmother's day you know used to go the market and you bought a live chicken. Actually grandpa did the the marketing and he would bring it home and they put it in the backyard and then grandmother would go out saturday morning and we its neck but you learn to learn to do that and i guess i have learned to. It's something that i'm dealing with on another kind of level but for something to live something else usually dies. There's there's a transition is not something. I would have been able to even to say to you at Even fifty years ago my twenties. I wouldn't have it it's really It's been interesting You reported in nineteen forty. Three's that right And yes and you so you grew up in a i like this. You talk a lot about what we call the sixties what is called the sixties which which you really date from about nineteen fifty four to nineteen sixty eight Which was such a dramatic moment. I mean a lot of transition. I mean you've just been using that word one question. I ask people whoever been talking to you as you know how. Would you describe the religious and spiritual background of your childhood. And i wonder how you would start to talk about that. And i really mean the fullness of that you know that that your family but also that world do you came into I i grew up of course Baptist baptist mount zion baptist church but when when mommy married My father married we call them gusts because daddy gus. When mommy may gust they moved to cincinnati. Because he couldn't get a job he was college graduate. He couldn't get a job in knoxville and so they moved to cincinnati where he could get a job and mommy joined the Ame church but if we're just going to just kinda breeze on religion without getting into anybody's business you know. I recently have been fascinated with. Wyatt is that we don't actually look into the manger more. We always look at the cross. And i think that one of the problems with the manger is that we have to mary credit for bringing god to earth and The book that i'm working on right now actress called a good cry and it's just because Realize women keep a lot of things in them. I do know this for married. I'm gonna give credit having a baby hurts. I don't care who it is. A weird came from having a baby hurts. So i wanna give mary her. Craps and i also want to deal with the fact that as we are giving this birth part of the christian religion is supposed to do is give birth to a new human being you. Ask one kind of question. I don't know if i'm answering it. Strangely no but great. I think this question lands wherever in us. It wants to begin voice. I mean you you also want said you you said jos. Think it must have been a woman who developed the spiritual. Oh gosh when we look at savored which actually slavery is only going to be the end result. We have to look at the kidnapping in africa. We have to look at no matter. What the country. We have to look at the fact that somebody's sold and somebody purchased an and that just cannot be denied. We we're upset of course with the europeans because we say oh they create a slavery they might have but they didn't create the buying and selling of human beings that that had been going on for quite some time all over so we had the people coming across that ocean not knowing where they were going but knowing whatever it was they were not going to go back to where they used to be so somehow another. They had to make a decision. How do we go forward. But it had to be a woman because we're back to the manger we back to marry. We're back to this when women do it had to be a woman who said i need to settle my people down and when you consider there were a lot of languages. Going on yeah. She didn't speak english at that point. They didn't speak. Why healy at that point. They were in many languages. The only common language is going to be So when we get to going to ultimately become the united states these people had created a way to speak to themselves to each other through the language to spare chose. Yeah so when you were twenty five you road. I'm twenty five years old. A revolutionary poet. I- love seth. I want to ask you about the. The i love tacked on at the end of the sentence but i also want to ask you about what you meant at twenty five when you said you'll revolutionary poet and how you hey you look at that now as nikki. Giovanni quite a few years later i think twenty five was good but i always thought twenty five was one fourth of my life
Black Doctors Use Social Media To Share Accurate Information About COVID-19 Vaccine
"The American public is hesitant to get a covert 19 vex. That number goes up to a third of Black Americans, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation poll last month. Hesitancy is rooted in real mistreatment and fanned by myths and misinformation, as NPR's Ping Wang reports some black doctors or finding creative ways to encourage vaccine acceptance. Well, very few vaccine safety problems have been reported. A lot of rumors are still floating online doctor Krista Marie Coleman has been tackling Cove admits on Tic Tac. She's the family physician in Orlando, and she describes one of the recent short video she made to counter misinformation. So yeah, so with the video I I'm using a trending song that people can relate to and as we can here with the song, it says, no, That's not true. So I say the covert vaccine will make you infertile, and I say that's not true. She posted the top second video in early December, and it's been viewed more than half a million times. And then I do a dance at the end, which people can relate to as well. A recent study published in the annals of Internal Medicine, like that public Health Message is geared at communities of color. Learn. It showed that black Americans are more receptive to information. If it comes from black doctors like Coleman. For some people, it means a lot when it comes from someone who looks like them. When it comes from someone who speaks like them. But only 5% of physicians in the U. S are black. Robert Drummond is another black doctor that's turned to social media to share accurate information. More broadly, he's an urgent care physician in Los Angeles, and in a recent Instagram live chat, he noted another big reason why people are wary of covert vaccines. With TV actor Dondre Whitfield's first Let me start by acknowledging the mistrust and acknowledging and understanding that there actually is a very real basis for that mistrust Well, said this deep distrust because that to the history of medical experimentation on slaves. It also goes back to the mid 19 hundreds when black men were deliberately not treated for syphilis. So researchers could see what would happen and it comes up to the present day. Just last week, a black doctor named Susan Moore died from covert 19 after alleging poor treatment at the hospital. When she asked for more pain medication, she said her white doctor made her feel like a drug addict. In the Instagram chat. Drummond pointed to a survey a couple years ago showing that a lot of doctors still wrongly believe that African Americans have a higher tolerance for pain. Everything from the top. We have thicker skin than two. We have a reduced we haven't heightened pain threshold so we don't need as much medication. This thing This is not from 19 hundreds. This is right in the 19 sixties. This is from the lake to thousands right now. As a black man, his part of the medical establishment, Drummond says his job is not to tell people to get vaccines. And said he wants to help people make their own informed decisions. But not everyone lives online. Alison Matthews, a sociologist at Wake Forest University, is researching how to increase trust in covert vaccines. In addition to the Internet, we've used conference wines as well, Azaz Mailed stuff out to people. You have to meet people where they are, in whatever level of communication is the most convenient for them. Matthew says that beyond black doctors, there are other community leaders that are trusted for advice. She works with black church leaders and sororities and civil rights groups. To generating trust in the health system is not a new challenge in the black community, says Dr Lisa Cooper, who directs the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Equity. Even before Cove, it 19 came up. A lot of the work that I did to try to address disparities in health care was focused on Having African Americans and people who are traditionally not given the sense of power and control in their healthcare play a more active role. For Cooper. The challenge is not just about overcoming vaccine hesitancy. It's for the medical community to learn how to build real trust. Ping
Learn To Listen To Yourself by Krista O'Reilly-Davi-Digui
"Learn to listen to yourself by krista o'reilly davig magee of a life in progress dot ca one of the greatest gifts. Anyone can offer me is to make me feel truly heard like they care what i have to say and how i feel no judgment are trying to fix me the gift of a safe space to hash things out and express what is on my mind and heart so that i can heal and gain clarity and have the courage to move forward. I shared how this might have helped me when as a teen i wanted to die. I don't need you to tell me what to do. I usually already know. But when you hear me i feel loved. I released shame. And i gained courage to take yet another stab into who and how i choose to be in the world. But here's another truth. We turn a coaches and counselors sisters and girlfriends to be heard. Do we offer ourselves the same precious gift do we practice hearing and honoring ourselves first offering our own person. The grace and compassion that we seek from others. Do we have the courage to look inward and learn to listen to what our minds bodies and spirits are telling us. This needs to be the starting place. We need to learn to listen to ourselves. We read every new book. That comes out travel to conferences. Jump at the chance to hear that guest speaker. We constantly gathering information. Jump on board with the new fad eagerly. Try out a new pill or the new program hoping that we will find the answer. We seek outside of ourselves. Talking with our best friends offering are well thought out. Opinions on social media and monthly meet ups with a life coach also repurpose but becoming more clearly ourselves figuring out who we want to be what we need identified a real passion or gifts we wanna bring to the world putting our finger on the place of unrest the root of our disease these all come as we learned to listen to ourselves. We so desperately wanna be heard so let us practice hearing ourselves with practice. We become better attuned to what our minds bodies and spirits are speaking quicker to trust a still small voice. More confident that we already know what it is. We need or that. The answer will come and we have only two still ourselves and listen. We can practice listening in myriad ways but today i want to offer some questions we might use as we practice pause go inward and learn to listen number one. At the end of the day we can take a few calming breasts and simply asked. How did my day go today. We might take note of three things. We agreeable for two things. We did well today. One thing we would do differently next time this way we can be into live more mindfully number two when strong emotions bubble up. We can get a loan for a minute and ask. What am i feeling right now. Spilled milk is probably not. The real issue is more likely that there is a deeper root of fear or overwhelm lurking beneath the surface. We can create space for tears. If need be pleased create space. Tears remind ourselves that our feelings are not bad not rage nor fear. Anger sadness grief loneliness pleasure or delight and pay attention to where that emotion lives in our body and our tents shoulders are temples are clenched fists or jaw. That throbbing pain in our legs will begin to see more clearly. The connection between our feelings and our physical symptoms number three if a strong urge to binge arises. Whether on netflix sleep food or alcohol we can notice pause and listen in after asking. What do they truly need right now. We might notice that we are physically or emotionally. Hungary incredibly tired afraid or excited when we do go ahead and eat or take some downtime. We can check in and ask is truly nourishing me as a way of getting clear on what it is that actually makes us feel well fed rested so that we begin to live more intentionally rather than on autopilot number four before pressing by now or signing up for that course or saying yes to one more engagement we can breathe and pause perhaps. Take a twenty four hour pause and ask. Will this truly serve me right now. We consider if it aligns with our current financial or life goals marvin honors the season. We are in. We might ask if we even truly like need have room for this new item food or experience or if we are simply afraid of missing out acting on impulse numbing or following the crowd and little by little we will begin to live more authentically
Wonder Woman 1984 is better than the original
"So we can get down the details of bottom line. Did you enjoy it. Was this good movie. yes. I thought it was great. It was probably little better than the first one. That is for reference sake and for four reference sake. Disa- gives a little context. What did you think of wonder woman. I think generally got positive reviews but there are folks didn't like it or thought it was a little derivative comic book films. Where did you stand on the opinion of that original film. I was great. I was i went into that. In twenty seventeen with sort of neutral expectations given how inconsistent dc extended universe movies are. I was very pleasantly surprised. It's probably my favorite of the recent modern movies and naturally four is a little bit better than that. Well that is high. Praise the main as you note the dcu has been inconsistent but there have been some some bright spots here there without going to spoil territory. I know you can't spoil too much. The details of what makes one thousand nine hundred four better than the original. The emotional core. He's very strong. That's that's super vague. Butch like so. Diana goes on an emotional journey. Tried to put this announce votary terms. Yes she she mirrors a lot of characters around her alike so petro pascal plays max lord's and he's kind of the bad guy and krista week is barbara minerva. She's somewhere in there. I won't spoil the nature of her character and they kind of go on these different emotional journeys based on magic the magic in this and he's kind of propels the plot and they each react to his in different ways. Movie always takes time to establish the characters emotional baseline where they're coming from. And it's very clearly informs how they react to the situation and it's just really satisfying like that. Okay and in terms of how it fits with the the dc you i know. It's not exactly a cohesive. Simak universe like marvels is but in terms of like linkage to some of these other movies. Is there some of that or is it. More of a standalone i know. Dc is largely been pushing towards more standalone films. Where where does this sort of stack up. Well so this is. The title suggests that in one thousand nine hundred eighty four where the twenty seventeen was set during world war one. That's so it's all well before the made events of the other movies so they feel very stand alone. It's her kind of passed before we see in those other movies and as a result like they could be watched on their own. Like in sequence. Which i think is really satisfying took. Follow along with her specifically this is. This film is notable. Not just because it's the next dc or actually the first big comic book movie to come out this year. It's also coming out here in the us at least coming out on hbo mac for free if are subscriber and that is a pretty radical move. I'm just curious what you think that experience or if that experiences changes in one of these big cinematic blockbusters really meant to be seen in a theater is going to be debuting in. Most people's living rooms are on their phones or tablets so i went to a socially distance. I am screening here in london to. I feel like all this is the way to see. This is a very big spectacular movie like they all are and i was glad to see it on a big screen like first safety reasons like hbo. Maximum wage ago for people in the states. All our subsequent viewings or these movies are always on tv or on atv at home at. It's fine so it's probably just idea that we should see these terms on the big screen but like if you have a big tv and look decent sound system. This'll be pretty spectacular. And you don't have to deal with the stuff you have to deal with going to movie theaters. Like deep la thoughts or you know. The usual distractions. At least you have that control.

Doesn't always give the answers, but it s important questions for over fifteen years on on being other radio programs. KRISTA. Tippett has been asking those same essential questions to poets, artists, musicians, astrophysicists, philosophers, mathematicians, a whole amazing array of people with very different points of view.

"The iron in the hemoglobin and our blood they were all cooked up in in A massive star that blew itself up billions of years ago. I mean we are literally in. Carl Sagan's where made of Stardust and it's quite literal and so to me being human is about appreciating the fact that we are so closely connected to this much bigger idea of an evolving universe. I mean I often say it takes. It takes a cosmos to make a human and I think you know I I have bad days and and I get upset with people and I think that some other individuals ideas are wrong or stupid even but I don't usually act out on them Because I really think that it's more important to Appreciate this Cosmos and and our connection to it then to fuss about trivial small concerns and so I spend my time trying to answer a big question and hopefully The team said are working on Seti searches will someday be able to share with humanity. All humanity a really important answer to a very old question. And if you're working on that how could you? How could you not be inspired? How could you not Find Satisfaction in being alive at the right time with the right technology to really probe something that's larger than we are When what what? What is that single question? What if you do you do it? Sounds like you do consent it to condense it to. What is what is the question. Well it's are we alone and that yeah that that has a range for by astro biology colleagues that means is there any out there right any microbial life any kind of biology and for me. I'm I'm more interested in the mathematicians than the microbes. So I want to know whether any of that life elsewhere has evolved into technological civilizations and it you know it's just it's really so stupendous to conceive of life evolving over billions of years from the reproducing biological molecule into the diversity of life that impacts this whole plan and somewhere. You said you call us. A primordial mixture of hydrogen and helium bit evolves for so long that it begins to ask where it came from. Yes it sounds right which which can sound like diminishing but actually it's just an extraordinary thought. I mean no other species on the planet today can use its senses and its tools to understand that long cosmic evolution and where we came from. And it's astonishing that life would eventually produce something that could study the Cosmos and wonder about where we came from no well. This is a beautiful extraordinary conversation. Thank you so much for what you do. Welcome KRISTA and I very much look forward to sharing this with are really diverse far-flung audiences thank you right.

It's been around throughout human history and I have the opportunity to try and use tools to answer that question so I'm I'm not very philosophical at heart. I enjoy the opportunity to try and move forward with this one overarching question. It's been fantastic and actually a very philosophically wise and I just thank you on behalf of all of us for pursuing that question. Well it's my pleasure really is okay.

"I'm Krista Tippett the host of on being a love. This new piece of writing by David White in his new book essentials and I'm happy. He gave me permission to read it to view here. It's called close. Close is what we almost always are close to happiness close to another close to leaving close to tears close to God close to losing faith close to being done close to saying something or close to success and even even with the greatest sense of satisfaction close to giving the whole thing up our human essence lies not in a rival but in being almost there we are creatures are on the way our journey a series of impending anticipated arrivals we live by unconsciously measuring the inverse inverse distances of our proximity an intimacy calibrated by the vulnerability we feel in giving up our sense of separation to to go beyond our normal identities and become closer than close is to lose our sense of self in temporary joy a form of a rival that only opens opens us to deeper forms of intimacy that Blur are fixed. Controlling surface identities to consciously become close is a courageous form of unilateral disarmament. A chancing of our arm and our love a willingness to hazard our affections in an unconscious declaration that we might be equal to the inevitable loss that the vulnerability of being close. We'll bring human beings. Do not find their essence through fulfillment or eventual arrival. But by staying close to the way they like to travel to the way they hold the conversation between the ground on which they stand and and the horizon to which they go we are in effect always close always close to the ultimate secret that we are more real in Dr Simple wish to find a way than any destination. We could reach the step between not understanding that and understanding. That is as close close as we get to.

We we actually have some construction going on here and we're wondering with the sensitivity of you're listening ability whether you might even hear here it across these thousands of miles well. I read wish but i'm fifty eight years old well. I'm really glad to have you at the other end it on microphone. Have you done one of these <hes> i._s._d._n.

I <hes> santa link to nancy just this morning before i left with some audio files which since we have a ninety minute session today. Is that correct yeah. We'll we'll probably go seventy five or so but we like to give ourselves room in case so it it does give us an opportunity for me to refer to a particular sound file. Yes illustrate my point and let's listen to it together so i can get your impression yeah. No we definitely can and <hes> and if we want to listen together we can but you you can also assume that we can you know the the art and craft of radio <hes> will serve <hes> the fullness of what you do you and what you care about because we can talk about it and and we're also going to be able to bring it in for our listeners to hear so. That's really exciting about this. Yes well. We'll thank you. I'm really looking forward to this. This is the first time that so many minutes have been devoted to the subject and yeah guys islands especially. We need some breathing space. Yeah one thing people often say about our show is <hes> people in radio and they say it with a little bit of trepidation russian. There's a lot of silence in your show. Which in radio is measured in you know nanoseconds <hes> because it's it's kind of a it's forbidden being dead air right but you'll understand that dead air isn't bad oh yeah it's never never really dead but you know you wait longer than three seconds with silence and you know your listeners it probably pounding on top of their dashboard just trying to make sure other radio still looking yeah or the or the engineers in the building doing. It's a we'll get this good. Okay so let's let's start at the beginning and maybe we will circle back around to why it makes all of us nervous too much silence sure <hes>. Where did you grow up up. I didn't see that anywhere well. That's assuming that i did grow up. Okay well a whole child. Let's say it that way. Ask child. I was a member of a military family started out in southern california than went on to hawaii why then back to california before going to washington d._c. Seattle san francisco and then i can say about a dozen other places before i got out of high school so by the time it was my chance to go to college.

"I'm Krista Tippett and this is on beings. Unheard cuts up next. My unedited conversation with lyric poet, Gregory. Or there is a shorter produced version of this wherever you found this podcast. We are thought about this because we were listening, very closely to the programming that Krista Tippett was doing with poets, and Astro physicists, and mathematicians and philosophers, and monks, and social activists, and she asks essential questions about what it means to be human being in the world and poetry is always asking those questions, and it seemed like a natural partnership. So we contacted her producer and here we are with Krista Tippett, and Gregory or with unbecoming and poetry. So happy to be sitting here again today with Gregory or. Let me say, I have some books and I will propose some poems read. And then if you feel just inspired to read some you can just tell me to throw one of these over to you at any time. Okay. Yeah. We are taping this to broadcast later. I don't know if we've said that which is exciting. So I think there's something really magical about. An experience that you have, like we're having a we are going to have an experience here in this room together for the next hour. And, and then you send it out and many, many more people are kind of are in the room, that's kind of the magic of the medium of audio and radio, which is now. Podcasting. And the experiences are different and yet communal. And so anyway, that's what we're pertaining of right now. Thinking as I was getting ready to speak with you. That about how human beings become wise, sometimes by discovering things. No one had ever known before. And sometimes we become wise by remembering and rediscovering things that people knew forever once, and then we forgot and I'm aware in the circles in which I move this really this really unexpected movement of our time often led by young people by millennials who are claiming grief and loss and death as human experiences. And there are things held death, cafes and the dinner party, which is a movement and is founded by people who had terrible loss in their early lives, and there was no place for them to talk about that in the world. And so that what they wanna do is claim grief and death as something that's not not to pathologies it. But as a part of life. That we reckon with and show and can asked and kind kinda company others in and be accompanied. In. Yes, it is. It's fascinating and bring the greed ver- person who's lost back into some form of human community. Sounds fascinating. I'd need to know more before. Well, I mean I thought about it, obviously, because an origin point and really enduring focus of your poetry. And of you becoming a poet was with this terrible, terrible death, and boss. Which was your younger brother's death, and you're on the cusp of adolescence. You're as you said, you're a kid participating in popular American ritual ritual hunting, firing a gun becoming a man. And actually, I'm not going to ask you to read the poem that ice in every interview, I've seen everybody hands, you this poem, right at the beginning, which begins I was twelve when I killed him. And I just I we're gonna talk about that. But I kind of just want to start someplace a little softer. I mean, I think small talk has a purpose, right? He's us into other conversations like this where did you grow up? Where yes I grew up in upstate New York rural Hudson valley. We had one stop light to drugstores, one jukebox in the dark drugstore and. Seven or eight churches..

"And we can't despoil it as we're doing. So in a sense as a half of an answer Krista because that's what I'd say to an adult is leaving a retreat right to a parent. I say, you know, as a child is growing up inevitably they live in the world. And they'll hear about things if they live in a house, that's a relatively peaceful, and we have a certain amount of control is parents about how much the TV is on. And what's on TV and how much how much? They are confronted by the pain of the world. And you know, what I think since full myself really, I can't sometimes with the pain of the world seems incomprehensible and unbearable to make. But I think if there's anything that balances it, it's. The wonder at the world the amazingness of people how kind they are how resilient they are. How people will take care of people that they don't know. Visit somebody falls someone's in trouble in a public place. People take care of them people take care of people that they don't know that human beings have that ability. I don't think they have to learn enough to have lessons in too. I think we're companionable speechis and for the most part every once in a while, we meet armored type people, but for the most part with companionable and congenial, and we care about other people, and we take care of them. So to be able to look at human beings and say give given beings are amazing life is amazing. The sun came up in the exact right place this morning and celebrate seasons. I think that's a wonderful part of being part of a of a group of people who celebrate seasons and birthdays and holy days. So that here we are again at another time in another season and said, great cosmos to look at and imagine people going up into space and looking at the stars our ancestors looked at the same stars. I think that there's a way of if I if I keep myself a sense of amazement, I tell my grandchildren look at this moon. It's a three day moon. It's the best moon. It's better than today. Moon today day moon is kind of skimpy really can't see it and afford they moon. It's already like on its way to what moon, but a three day move is just beautiful. It's my favorite moon. And if I show that to them, then they'd be into think, oh, it's. Favorite moon three? But that just happens to be me. I like moons everybody will do in their own way. But I think that always balances it when when the Bitta Todd about needing to see the suffering in the world, so that we could respond with compassion. He also talked about the preciousness of life and the need to take care of it. And I think those two at the same time. I mean, that's also something I think our children give us new is, especially when they're very little see the world, actually, Trent my colleague was talking about taking a walk with his son energy. I remember those moments when you're a little, and it's like everything has been invented for them. And they name it and everything is fascinating. Right. Can look at one flower for a long time. It's amazing. He started to do that. I have a friend who at who ends all of her emails. You know, we have an automatic signature in you, push your marriage signature hierarchy Matic signatures, says stay amazed. And I love that. I was. This is also making me think about how we we need to be attentive to what our children can teach us as well as what we want to impart to them because some of this they know, and they actually know immediately than we do because we lose it. Remember watching something terrible in the news the other day, and my daughter said. So many beautiful lives in the world. And this is what they focus on. She's so right. But she knows that. And I've kind of lost it. In. I think the beautiful and wonderful lives in world. I certainly I'm not a sociologist of journalism aren't as compelling images. Right. As the headline. They don't make good headlands in a wonderful. I don't know if it would be commercially viable, if they were channel that had all of wonderful things..

There is a shorter produced version of this wherever podcasts are found. And Chris somewhere, it'd be able to get your. Hello. Hello. Hi, Joanna heights Krista Tippett high. I can't hear you very well. All right. When I say, we can turn up the volume turn, I'm late maybe a minute or two because of the parking confusion. No problem. Don't worry. Take your time catcher breath. Yeah. That'd be good. That good catch my breath. Let me tell you. Let me tell you what I have in mind. I don't I need more volume to hear you better. Oh, okay. I see that's going to happen. The your end. Can you are you is that any better? Or are you hearing me now as a little better? Okay. Sorry. What's the now? My voice is very lower to me. Right. So let's get it adjusted a little bit of that shouldn't. Are you are you working on that Chris? Or is that that's better. Okay. Good. Okay. Let me tell you what I have in mind while you catch your breath. Okay. I I own now, I'm hearing an echo. Let's see that's probably that's her headphones being a little bit loud day. Maybe if I. You know, it's not too bad. If I stay back from the Mike Nowak should get you where you're comfortable, Chris. If we can't get the headphones down just a little bit. I think I'll be okay, there's a that the thing that happens with headphone volume as if it's too high your end than I hear an echo and vice versa. So we need. We'll get a happy medium here. So can they if what's the engineer's name, Chris Harris, Kelly, Harris or Kelley should be able to hear us? Okay. Okay. Now, I think this is Kelly Kelly. Are you still hearing the go it turned on the headphones year? We're still hearing it. So I mean, it's it's tricky because do you have mixed that you can have her level be adjusted in comparison with Christos? Yes. Yeah. Working on that. Yeah. So, you know, it's probably more difficult because having a little hard of hearing. And I took off my hearing aids. Well, we'll we'll be able to work it out. But I'm sure you have is not the first time you've had to deal with that. The thing is with technology. It's amazing and something different is difficult. Every time. Kelly is your Mike open right now. Yes. My my guess here alternate off, and we'll see if that makes it different, okay? Testing testing. I'm not hearing myself now Joanna can you still hear me very well? Good. Okay. So so let me tell you what I have in mind. I am a lover of real like you. And I I I don't for your translations have Rilke good. I I spent most of the eighties in Germany, most of that in divided Berlin. And I speak German, and and real has German is, you know, one of the most beautiful things in the world to me. And I could never find translations that captured that.

"Visiting fetzer dot org. I'm Krista Tippett. And this is on beings. Unheard cuts up next my unedited conversation with Rebecca tracer and AVI Klein, there is a shorter produced version of this wherever podcasts are found. And so this is really fun because how often do you get to introduce one of your own journalistic heroes mentors and friends at it's very funny. Chris it because I cannot see you at all. So it's like I. Like. Like this. This woman probably requires no introduction, but Krista Tippett as a Peabody award winning broadcaster, national humanities medalists New York Times bestselling author. She founded and leads the on being project hosts, the globally, esteemed on being public radio show and podcast and curates the civil conversations project. She grew up in a small town in Oklahoma, attended Brown University and became a journalist and diplomat in Cold War Berlin and later received a master of divinity from Yale University, and she's working on a new book her last book was becoming wise an inquiry into the mystery art of living, which is a really beautiful book. I thought it'd be funny. If I told my meeting, you story, Krista, which I don't even know if you remember, but I we were at the same conference and I'd never met her. And I have this thing, right? Never really want to meet any of my heroes because I'm afraid that if I meet them, I will just babble it and say nothing that they haven't heard before and just inconvenience them. And I always talk myself out of it. It. So I was at a conference and Krista was there, and I was turned turned to my friend. And I said if I do meet Krista Tippett, unlike all these other times where I don't talk to the people who I like really look up to I'm going to tell her this gonna tell her that. And we'll toes other thing. And all of a sudden, I feel this like light touch on my elbow and Kris Jenner and she's like, hi Courtney. I'm Chris, and I was like oh God. Okay. Well, I've already told all the things so at least now I can just sort of slink away. But it was the banning of a very beautiful friendship, which I am. So deeply grateful for I'm going to let her introduce the other two brilliant humans up here. Both of which I also very much admire, but please take it away Krista. You courtney? Now, I don't know where you went. So I I wrote out some remarks to begin with because I wrote them out because I think we all agreed. It's this it feels it's hard to talk about all of this feels a little perilous. And I know you've all been together all day. And so it may not feel that way to anymore, and I don't want to say it goes without saying, but I still think it's worth saying again. And again that metoo is a moment and it didn't just start a year ago. And Rebecca tracer is one of the people who has been reminding us of that this year in Toronto Burke, who I gave rise to these worse in two thousand six spoke to the times just this past week of her concern that the movement that is now underway really the movement that are now under around this don't lose sight of the central mission, which was and still is to connect survivors of sexual assault to the resources they need in order to heal. Will. And I read and I thought that the h word he'll has not had much of a place in the journalistically driven public reckonings of the past year and that word can be employed to quickly in the face of trauma. But surely the complex of reckonings because that's what it is that we are societally naming and wrapping our arms around with the impetus of metoo is at best an opening to a long term cultural reckoning to grow up humanity to grow up our species to grow up our society. I think that a solutions lens on me too. And I just love the framing of this day would ask can journalism can journalists be among the culture, interrogators shapers who helped create and shine a light on the spaces the vocabulary. The imaginative muscle the processes and the pragmatic forms to support healing where it is possible now and in time. I believe that the that grappling with the me too movement through solutions lens, which show us ways to cover this and live this not as a liberal issue..
