An Interview With Penny Bauder

My advice would be to seek out the good news — the stuff that doesn’t get the most clicks or the biggest headlines, but it’s real, it’s happening. Neighbors are supporting each other. Cities are supporting each other. People are coming together in ways that make my heart ache with hope for the future. When I’m really feeling the weight of all of it, I look at my kids. Sure, they’re fighting like snakes. Sure, they have pasta sauce on their clothes. One of them might be on my roof right now — I’m not quite sure what that noise is. But you know what? They’re doing remarkably well. They’re adapting. They’re resilient. The kids are alright. You will be, too.
