I will fully admit that I'm a news junkie. I need to know what's going on in the world, even when the news is horrible. I'm frankly more troubled by what I don't know than what I do. But there is news and then there is commentary, particularly on social media. And thanks to recent events, a lot of that commentary has turned into hate. As we marked five years since the deadliest antisemitic attack in U.S. history, it's been particularly hurtful to see an increase in antisemitic rhetoric online. So this month I have embraced the ability to curate what I see and to mute or unfollow accounts that are sharing hurtful content. there's a lot of power in controlling your feed, and for me, it means that even as I follow the news, I can also go online to find joy.
