Headlines storm newsstands and websites every hour, and yet we often let important events slide past us without stopping to reflect.

Just this week, headlines included:

  • Singapore frees its famous teenager blogger.
  • The Pope apologizes for the church's "grave sins" during colonialism in Latin America. 
  • China braces for Typhoon.
  • The US debates the Confederate flag.
  • Boko Haram massacres more than 100.

 

This week’s prompt asks you to PAUSE... and join the conversation.
