Ten Things that Caught My Eye (March 1, 2019)

That it is March 1 already. A day that was forever changed seven years ago when Andrew Breitbart died. Thinking about him and praying for his eternal rest and his family.

1. Michael Wear in The Atlantic:

What the abortion debate needs is not an increase of moral outrage—we have plenty of that—but instead a sense of moral lament. It is to our collective shame that our politics seems incapable of such a development.

2. Washington Post on Veterans parking lot suicides

3. Fewer prescription opiods are leading to more suicides

4. In Their Own Words: Parents of Kids Who Think They Are Trans Speak Out

6. An adoption at 17


8. Pew: The way U.S. teens spend their time is changing, but differences between boys and girls persist

9. Patricia Heaton on her recent trip to Rwanda.
