This episode focuses upon the actions of young people speaking up and leaving school to protest mass shootings and the cycle of violence that has not found a meaningful response from national leaders and institutions.  Michael Meade puts the current issues in the context of an old story where a youth suffering a great loss encounters an elder waiting to help. Introducing the presence of a knowing, compassionate elder moves things to a different level.  Seen psychologically and in mythic terms, the passionate ideals of youth need to be supported by the generosity, wisdom and life-affirming courage of awakened elders.

At the cultural level, the elder acts as a bridge between youth and society; at a mythic level, the elder becomes a guide between halfness and wholeness. One foot remains in the issues of the day, while the other remains in contact with the unseen world. As the old proverb puts it: ‘A village without elders is like a tree without roots’
