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.

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?

Hey enviro friends - I need a favor. I'm going to compile a list of "must-read" books, documentaries, etc on American rivers and water issues. Have any suggestions? Can be fiction or nonfiction. Just interesting stuff that will help me understand what makes rivers in the US so great, and what issues they're facing. Likely will publish the list on CNN as part of the ‪#‎changethelist‬ effort. Thanks!
