Some children, it seems, belong to secret societies. Their approaches to life suggest membership in good standing with the Future Tinkerers of America, Mini-Mechanics Guild or Tiny Troubleshooters Union. Curiosity leads these children into taking action, and taking apart perfectly good appliances to find the secret buttons or where the wires connect.

Yesterday (May 9) was the birthday of the late Jesuit priest and poet, Daniel Berrigan. Here are 7 of our favorite poems of his…

 

Like many others during the 1960s, Berrigan’s active protest against the Vietnam War earned him both scorn and admiration. His particular form of militancy and radical spirituality in the service of social and political justice was significant enough, at that time, to “shape the tactics of resistance to the Vietnam War” in the United States.
