Muslim tries to save the man who shot him in a hate crime from being executed.

It's hard to know how to act when a serious homophobe is flamingly effeminate.

The educational value of creative disobedience (note that 99 percent of teachers will say they agree with this, but 98 percent of them think that kids who actually act that way are troublemakers).

The NFL star and the brain injuries that destroyed him.

Grains of sand, magnified.

How a miracle story grew in the telling.
