Carrying On: Nostalgia, Inc.

A few weeks ago, I came across some ’80s Russian pop-rock songs and was instantly transported back to my childhood. These were the songs that my parents played in the car, the ones that woke me up on Sunday mornings, the first albums on my fourth-grade MP3 player. I was overjoyed but also overwhelmed with…

For anyone who has grown up sitting through masses and the homilies therein, the phrase “follower of Christ” probably passes by your ears unchecked. “Follower,” “sheep in the flock,” and “servant to the Eternal Master” are all ways of explaining how we are called to heed and obey the Word of God. While it is…

Branching Out: D.C.’s Troubled Democracy

“Democracy Dies in Darkness.” A phrase familiar to most of us, this solemn threat hangs over the Washington Post website like the Watergate. It is a noble slogan. Pleasantly alliterative, like Shakespeare or Bob Dylan, and just as endearingly self-important. Adopted after the Trump ascendancy, it signals the intention of that paper, along with the…

The last thing I expected to be listening to on the way home from Emelia’s vigil was trap music. Piled into my car, my high school friends and I took a long drive on the back roads of rural Connecticut, yelling to each other over heavy bass drops, asking about college, sharing stories about our…

Growing up, I assumed my family was middle class. We had our own house, and my parents had stable jobs. We never seemed to lack anything. But the Great Recession shattered all illusions my parents had constructed to hide the fact that we were, in fact, poor. Our house was foreclosed on and the collapsing…

What I admire most about Georgetown’s Jesuit ideals is the value they place on being attentive to your surroundings, especially to what may seem like distractions. As unusual as it sounds, distractions can actually reveal unexpected lessons and call you to some form of action. I never expected to see this Jesuit value reflected in…
