Lots of feelings with this one.
Upsetting story but one that I’m proud to have worked on and lucky to have made friends through. Included are a few outtakes as well as my first A1 for the @nytimes + the accompanying inside spread.
Can’t thank @andrewhinderaker enough for this.
On top of the experience in itself—going into homes and hearing heart wrenching stories and forming relationships and even receiving a lovely drawing from Mikaila (and pictures of her dressed up on Halloween via text)—I’m truly grateful to have the support of a good editor who cares.

Anyways. Please check out the article by David, Al and James if you get the chance. “Tests Showed Children Were Exposed to Lead. The Official Response: Challenge the Tests” *Link in bio*

I was a little worried that we might not catch the brilliance of autumn on this hike. All the dead trees made this one all the more beautiful.

Long day tromping through the woods with loved ones. Away from work and noise. Should do this more often.

“If we were educated more on, like, political participation...I feel like we would be way more informed and we would know how to address our issues, you know?”•
At the end of last year through spring of this year, I worked on this project for @topicstories about what young folks care about. Even before the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School turned their tragedy into a national movement, giving young people a platform like they’ve never had before, I’d been wondering what sorts of issues were on adolescent minds. Teaching middle schoolers piqued my curiosity—it's pretty damn sobering to hear how 11 and 12 year olds interpret the issues plaguing our society today. •

Thankful this little creature is on the mend. Didn’t think it was possible to tell Professor even more than usual how much I love her but this week proved otherwise.

Sitting behind🦄 @jess.kirkham during today’s @bronxdocumentarycenter teacher orientation (I swear I was still paying attention @bianca_farrow).

Above is Tori Jessie, 15 (at the time), who lives in Florissant, Mo. and attends a private Christian high school. One thing she discussed with me was her struggle in deciding whether to kneel during the national anthem as a form of protest in her predominantly white school and the repercussions it might bring. She also talked about the perception of her neighborhood according to her classmates and her younger sister’s teacher. Florissant is a suburb in St. Louis that shares a border with Ferguson. #takeaknee #colinkaepernick #soundon #keepswiping
