By: KidSpirit Online
Articles published include a reflection on the transformative and healing nature of what one writer considers a great power, forgiveness;
Each issue of KidSpirit revolves around a Big Question posed by the magazine’s all-youth Editorial Board. This fall, one author delves into human interactions large and small — from schoolyard arguments to international relations — to explore why we seek power.
Later this quarter, contributors will tackle the theme from new angles. One feature article will search for solutions to corruption in the US government. Another will examine how body language influences a person’s level of authority, both in her own experience and in the eyes of others. Interfaith Connections pieces, new poetry, and original artwork will offer additional perspectives on the theme.
In October, Valarie Kaur will share an article in KidSpirit’s PerSpectives section — the only column reserved for an adult each quarter. Ms. Kaur is an internationally recognized lawyer, filmmaker, and activist who helps communities channel their stories into movements for social change. She is the founder of Groundswell Movement, America’s largest multifaith online organizing community.
KidSpirit is a unique forum for young people to explore life’s big questions in an open spirit. This issue highlights the value of youth voices around the world. For interviews and further information, please contact Jessie Post at the information below.
