  • What's Dead Can Die

    by Liddy Barlow
    In George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire novels, the source of the HBO series Game of Thrones, the people of the Iron Islands take Paul’s idea to its macabre conclusion: in their ordination rite, priests hold a man under the ocean waves until he stops breathing, then (with luck) resuscitate him again on the beach. After such an initiation, Ironborn leaders are utterly fearless. Their slogan is “What’s dead can never die.”

    If you have ever watched the miniseries based on Alex Haley’s book, Roots, then you know that this story is about far more than some genealogical curiosity that seeks to fill in the blank branches on a family tree. Roots was about far more than old history and names. From the very beginning when Alex Haley’s ancestor Kunte Kinte was violently kidnaped from Africa, it was clear that what this genealogical tracing was about was nothing short of identity. Kunte Kinte’s story stayed alive, and needed to be passed down the generations, because that story would tell all his descendants who they really were. Kunte never accepted Toby, the name given to him by the white man. He never accepted that he was a slave. He was proud. He was a warrior descended from a strong and good and noble people. For Kunte’s offspring, knowing the family’s roots was not about information but formation. These roots did not simply trace back to what had been but drew lines forward to what still was.

  • Lazarus Laughed

    by Gilbert Bowen
    A pre-school teacher tells of a time when she began to feel sorry for herself, wonder whether she was not “burned out.” She wondered whether there wasn’t something wrong with the current crop. They didn’t seem to respond to her as they used to. Then her mother died. It was necessary for her to take a week off from her teaching duties to attend to her mother’s affairs and funeral. She had been very close to her mother, and following the funeral she needed some time to deal with her feelings. Her frustrations with pre-school seemed like an even heavier burden at this point in her life. After a weekend of aimless shopping, puttering in the garden and watching TV, she knew that she must return to her classroom. But she felt more like a soldier going into battle than a teacher of pre-schoolers. The first day back was about what she expected. Her hurt and despair produced resentment that she carefully kept hidden. She smiled at the right times and was admirably patient considering her raw feelings. But then it happened. She came around the corner to discover Rachel picking the last Chrysanthemum from the pot in the hall. Rachel, the most distant, most disruptive child in the class. In a stern, trembling voice, the teacher demanded, “Rachel, what are you doing?” Rachel held out in her little hand the flowers she had picked. “Mrs. Terrell, you used to be like a mother. Would these flowers help you to be like a mother again? I know you are fussed in your mind. Wouldn’t you like some flowers?” Mrs. Terrell thought, fussed in my mind? You mean it shows? To a five-year-old? She spoke, “Rachel, what is a mother like?” “A mother is like you used to be,” Rachel said. “A mother likes being with children.”...

    by Billy Strayhorn
    Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes walks into the living room where his father is sitting and announces: "I've concluded that nothing bad that I do is my fault." His curiosity peaked, Dad says, "Oh?" Calvin continues: "Right! Being young and impressionable, I'm the helpless victim of countless bad influences! An unwholesome culture panders to my undeveloped values and pushes me to maleficence. I take no responsibility for my behavior! I'm an innocent pawn! It's society's fault." Dad is totally unimpressed and says, "Then you need to build more character. Go shovel the walk." In the last scene, Calvin is shoveling snow and complains, "These discussions never go where they're supposed to go."...
