While I was editing my parish’s devotional book and trying not to play Taonga, I listened to a lot of TEDx talks as I needed some background noise. Here are some of the ones I enjoyed.
Caitlin Doughty. Caitlin is the person behind the “Ask a Mortician” YouTube channel. I decided to check out her channel more thoroughly after watching this talk.
Christian Picciolini. It’s unnerving to me that Christian was recruited to the White Power movement by someone seemingly expressing concern for him. He also admits that some of his music helped to radicalize Dylan Roof, the shooter in the attack on Mother Emmanuel church in South Carolina.
Darryl Davis. How many people would meet with someone who hates them to try and understand the reason behind that hatred?
Eric Hodgdon. He had a really positive message on how to get through after the death of a loved one.
Lucy Hone. This was helpful in seeing behaviors in my life that are beneficial in dealing with adversity. Lucy’s daughter was killed in a car accident, and all of her psych training had to ber sifted through to help her cope.
Greg Boyle, S.J. Because kinship.
Sue Kleibold. How do you heal from your son and a friend killing 13 people before killing themselves. Sue explains.
