A Timely Issue on Violence and Healing from KidSpirit's Global Youth Voices

By: KidSpirit
BROOKLYN, N.Y. - March 22, 2023 - PRLog -- KidSpirit (http://kidspiritonline.com), the award-winning online magazine by and for youth to explore life's big questions, launches its spring issue on the theme "Violence and Healing." Starting today, 11-to-17-year-olds around the world share writing, poetry, art, and video on a weighty topic that confronts them far too often in today's world.

Each issue of KidSpirit revolves around a Big Question posed by the all-youth Editorial Board. This season, the editors ask, "Can traumatic experiences lead to inner development?" In her response, a young editor digs deep into her personal experience to show us how tragedy can lead to transformation.

Other pieces released today include an article on the prevalence of violence, a contributor's personal essay on living through the invasion of Ukraine, another writer's reflection on how her faith offers stability and strength during difficult times, a piece about how we can all act to prevent the violent impacts of climate change, a review of the movie Till, and a creative reimagining of an Icelandic saga of love, feud, and grief.

Throughout the season, KidSpirit will continue to publish writing, poetry, artwork, and video by youth on this powerful theme. In Features, writers will examine the psychology of forgiveness and inform readers about the current conflict in Ukraine. An Awesome Moments piece will delve into a transformative conflict with a former friend, while the Interfaith Connections department will feature perspectives of teens through the lenses of Jainism and Catholicism. In Media, young authors will review more books and movies related to the issue's theme, including the novel The Firekeeper's Daughter and the movie Wonder. The Fiction and Poetry departments will showcase more creative writing on the topic from lyrical young authors around the world.

Each issue of KidSpirit features additional wisdom from one adult with expertise in the theme in a column called PerSpectives. In this issue, violence prevention advocates Pardeep Kaleka and Nicole Hockley will respond to questions posed by kids around the world. Other co-authors may be announced later in the season.

KidSpirit is a unique forum for young people of all backgrounds and traditions to explore life's big questions in an open spirit. For interviews and further information, please contact Taylor Cornelius at the information below.
