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.
