Join us for a special Tony Talks to Teachers about Environmental Justice with colleague and friend Mary Dudley.
As a child I participated in a theatrical production about fire. The production has three movements. At one point we danced around a pile of TVs on stage to represent a large bonfire. Later we were asked to escape a burning building. When asked what I would take from my home in a fire I quickly answered car keys. Apparently at 8 years old I was going to drive away from that burning mess.

What are they doing,
What happened here?
My carrots are missing,
Parts here and there.
I waited all day for a package. It never came. I felt a little sad and all I wanted to do was eat some junk food. Did I binge and get upset? No, I understood that amid COVID-19 more people are shopping online, I understood that my order was a luxury and not a necessity. How do I deal with disappointment, it’s a typical pattern.
What’s the point?
Have you ever had those moments where you wonder why you’re doing something?
You take a moment and think, no one cares, no one wants this, no one notices this.
That’s when you have to look inside and ask, why? Is this for you or is it to please others. Now is a great time to stop, reassess and find compromise.
The world is full of characters but, life is much more complicated than a story. You might feel like your life is the A story line, or sometimes the B. But, there are no storylines, only a woven tapestry of events both complicated and simplified by the actions of others.
Sometimes, it is okay to feel out of control. Sometimes, it is okay to say goodbye. Sometimes you must walk away from what was and walk into what will be. We have all tried to hide away for as long as we can but, one day we must confront the truth and come to the realization that our world is illuminated by the light we cast.
Last fall I planted a few Daffodils in an expanded flowerbed. It was a welcomed sight when their bright yellow flowers began to appear this spring.
But the flowers are starting to fade, and the weeds are showing through. And I’m realizing a very important lesson.
Weed control is about long-term lifestyle choices not short-term aggression.
Join us for a weekly conversation on current events through the lens of policy analysis. Each week we’ll use a research-based model or framework to analyze an event or instance and use evidence based data to inform our opinions. This week we’re looking at Ohio’s response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. We’ll talk about the successes and failures and why decisions were made.
