I was honored to be approached by an editor for The New York Times' "Room for Debate" to respond to questions related to a piece. That debated was published August 28.
My opinion piece appears here. There have been a number of really interesting comments on the piece. I also encourage you to read the other debaters responses.
I just found out from my boss the piece was published. Pretty cool to have her be the first to congratulate me.
My mother, were she still alive, would be incredibly proud.
