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.

How the Trump administration got comfortable separating immigrant kids from their parents: “Reports have surfaced of children, some as young as toddlers, being wrested from family members, and of parents being deported before they could locate their children, who remain stranded in the U.S.” (The New Yorker)

In the #metoo era, raising boys to be good guys: “The thought of either of my two sons harassing or assaulting another person, or being victims themselves, is enough to keep me up at night. Any parent is likely to share my worry.” (The New York Times)

The child-free life: “The American birthrate is sinking: 3.8 million babies were born last year — the lowest number in three decades and down 2 percent from 2016.” (The Washington Post)

The death toll in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria is rising: “According to a new study, more than 4,600 people are estimated to have died on the island, many from delayed medical care. The government’s initial tally was 64 deaths.” (Vogue)

Call it a comeback: “And then, suddenly, [Serena] Williams was back. Animated. Determined. Dominant, even.” (TIME)

I don’t feel superhuman, I feel like a mom who has a career: “Such considerations have held back female representation in every corner of government. Women comprise 20 percent of Congress. They hold a quarter of the cabinet posts in the Trump administration.” (The New York Times)

RIP Anthony Bourdain "The Man Who Ate The World.”  (The New York Times)
