An Essay after Sandy Hook
My essay, "Under the Gun: The Voices of Men in a Time of Violence", has been published in Kiese Laymon's magazine, Cold Drank. I hope you will be moved by its urgency and continue to think about art, education, beauty, and cultures of reflection in this moment of severity. For all of my teachers. For all of our teachers. And for all of our students.
