This week’s featured idealist is Fred Rogers of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood; it turns out he was about as idealistic as a human can be. The Big Interview is with Sarah Drake of herARTS in Action, a St. Cloud nonprofit working to provide clean water and personal hygiene resources in Burkina Faso in West Africa. In the C-Block, I share about talking to queer high school students in Red Wing MN and their reaction to being told they were “worthy” and that they “mattered.”
