S5E2: Boulder Grocery Store Shootings, Solidarity and Solutions
This episode was a tough one. Sage and Erica mourn the recent mass shooting in a Boulder grocery store, just around the corner from Sage’s home. They discuss what it means to stand in solidarity and allow space for grief, while also working toward solutions. In this episode we share: The potential racial backlash from the tragedy How to talk to kids about the complicated factors in these horrific acts of violence Our feelings and perspectives that are showing up as we process the recent tragedy The stigma and complexity of mental illness, especially in mass casualty situations The importance of love and community in times of tragedy This episode hits really close to home.
