It’s about Time with Kent Behrens

A while before this particular coronavirus circumstance graced our lives, I shuffled through a pile of books I wanted to read, several of which I had started at one time or another.

Blinded by Science

Blinded by Science by Michael Braunstein Hey, I may be wrong about this. I can’t prove it but I think science has left the barn. You see, when I was in school, (just a few brief decades ago,) I was taught that science was pretty much based on stuff you could prove. If you did […]

COVID First Person

By Ryan Syrek   When my mom would drive me to middle school, I used to list the names and jersey numbers of Chicago Bears players on the way, so I wouldn’t literally shit my pants due to anxiety about bullies and homework. When I turned 15 and learned to drive, I was terrified of […]

Crisis Behind Closed Doors: How the Pandemic Has Impacted Children’s Mental Health and What it Could Mean for Our Future

  By Chris Bowling I hate the coronavirus. Truer words could not define the country and world’s feelings at this moment; however, they rarely appear so succinct and blunt. But that’s exactly what Bonnie Sarton Mierau hears during weekly counseling sessions with kids at the Attachment and Trauma Center of Nebraska in West Omaha.  They […]

What’s Your Pandemic Project?

I am a single father of a four year old and eight year old daughter. Their mama is a front-line health care provider here in Omaha and my girls are deeply worried about her, as well as these broader large, fairly incomprehensible, changes that have suddenly marked their world.
