When I learned that my first issue as editorial director of YES! would be on death, I cringed a little. However, immersing myself in the issue, I found that death is really about life—how we connect and heal in times of grief, how we help people die with dignity, and even how we plan for the disposition of our bodies. Take this piece on natural burials (one of the most anticipated articles among YES! readers). It shows that people are planning for green burials not just to lower expenses and reduce pollution, but also to care for the land, preserving natural sites for their loved ones to visit.

If you want to see the face of American terrorism, data from the past decade of mass shootings tell a remarkably consistent story.
