GRAND Magazine - Summer 2021 - 3
Summertime and the living is...
asier, maybe? We are coming out of the COVID shell we were in last summer and perhaps it's worth remembering
what it cost to get here...or cost some of us.
Over 600,000 U.S. families lost a loved one to the virus and millions more have had near-death experiences. The
pandemic's financial fall out has been shockingly uneven, driving the wedge ever deeper between the haves and the

The pandemic is inextricably linked to politics. While the former president continues to inflame political tensions, the
battle for the soul of America is raging in the background, and the
stakes for democracy are incredibly high. So, we're not completely
out of the woods but it is a new and better summer. Let's enjoy it!
We hope our summer issue will bring you some quiet pleasure
as we reintroduce you to the music icon, Yusuf/
Cat Stevens. Wendy Schuman's interview with Yusuf Islam,
formerly known as Cat Stevens, pays tribute to the music legend
and also the man who traded fame and fortune to help build a
more peace-filled world.
Also in this issue learn about the value of summer outdoor
play, the benefits of travel for grandchildren, learn ways to
think beyond your own bubble, meet an extraordinary bubbe,
check out the pros and cons of medical cannabis, bake a unicorn
cake and so much more.

How do you talk to someone who doesn't
believe in climate change? Not by rehashing
the same data and facts we've been discussing
for years, says climate scientist Katharine
Hayhoe. In this inspiring, pragmatic talk,
Hayhoe shows how the key to having a real
discussion is to connect over shared values like
family, community and religion.
Katharine Hayhoe is a climate
scientist who studies what climate
change means to us in the places
where we live.
