An Essay on Goodness Inspired by Robert Lax

Here’s the link to a lyrical essay on Goodness I wrote for Notre Dame Magazine, with more than a little of Robert Lax’s spirit in it.

Notre Dame editor Kerry Temple asked me to write the piece shortly after last November’s election because he was tired of hearing only about badness. Then he built an entire essay around the theme of Goodness–something this past year has left us all wanting more of.

You’ll find links to the many other thoughtful and inspiring pieces in the issue in a sidebar next to my essay.
