The news cycle is fast and furious—which is why we shifted through the recent noise and found a few articles we believe matter. These thoughts and ideas made us pause, think and, most importantly, consider what is happening in the world. We hope they do the same for you.

A year of Donald Trump in the White House: “And yet there are grounds for optimism. Institutions may crumble, but more might yet be saved.
