Pat yourselves on the back! CNN readers funded this public service announcement about trafficking of the endangered #pangolin  - and I'm told it soon will air on national TV in Vietnam!! So excited. You guys are for-real making difference out there in this big-bad world. #changethelist

"Empathy isn't just something that happens to us -- a meteor shower of synapses firing across the brain -- it's also a choice we make: to pay attention, to extend ourselves." -- Leslie Jamison

My piece on #ebola and empathy, for CNN.
The world's response to Ebola is its own sort of tragedy.

My column today ...
John Sutter: Despite same-sex marriage victories, the United States skips over other rights perhaps more essential for LGBT people.

John Sutter: The kidnapping of schoolgirls by Boko Haram in Nigeria is a harrowing reminder that slavery remains pervasive.

I'm a day late posting it here, but thought I'd share it in case you're interested in the environmental arguments for cutting back on meat consumption. I'm landing in a place of moderation on this .. 
Is it possible to eat meat in modern-day America, consider yourself an environmentalist and sleep soundly without being a hypocrite?

My latest for CNN: Mauritania needs to drop these charges against a 15-year-old girl who was rescued from modern  #slavery . 
Imagine being rescued from modern slavery, only to be charged with a crime.

Do you think the world's response to ‪#‎Ebola‬ is racist? Would love to hear your thoughts on this. Here's what Kofi Annan told the BBC: "If the crisis had hit some other region it probably would have been handled very differently." Agree? Disagree? Any why? Writing a piece for CNN..

On Sunday I had the privilege to meet with the mother of a 9-year-old boy who died one year ago today in the Moore, Oklahoma, tornado, likely because his school didn't have a storm shelter. His mother, Danni Legg, has spent the last year tirelessly advocating for the state to put storm shelters in all schools. I hope someone listens to her. #okwx
The mother of a child killed in the Moore, Oklahoma, tornado a year ago is pushing for storm shelters in schools, with little luck, writes CNN's John D. Sutter.

My take on yesterday's botched execution , which I hope will be a wake-up call to Oklahoma and other US states that support the death penalty. 
It's an unreal scene, like one from a horror film.
