"I'm feeling relaxed. I feel like I've exhaled, I feel like there's a little bit of a lighter bounce in my step," says legendary filmmaker Ken Burns with President Biden now in office.

"I think what we saw yesterday were the signals of adults."

Tonight at 11pm, the remarkable @KenBurns and @DorisKGoodwin join me for an hour long discussion about the history we are all living through. @CNN

"It genuinely makes me sad to think people would believe that, and I've been kind of sad about it all day. That is not what I was doing. I wasn't dissing a restaurant. I was dissing criminality."

Sunday on @60Minutes meet the #JusticeDefenders @justicedefends. In 46 prisons in #Kenya and #Uganda, they’re training 100’s of inmates to be paralegals and even get law degrees so they can help others get fair hearings. The results have been astounding!

Just watched #TheOutpost based on @jaketapper’s best-selling book. It is an incredible story of courage, and sacrifice by American soldiers in Afghanistan. The movie is intense and illuminating and i keep thinking about it.

Just finished fascinating new book “The Hidden History Of Burma,” by my friend, @thantmyintu. Burma/Myanmar is such a complex country and this book is essential to understanding it better. I highly recommend it!

Thank you to all who have followed along today. If you’re interested in hearing more of these stories, you can find The Only Plane in the Sky here:

This new book by Garrett Graff is stunning. The Only Plane In The Sky is a gripping, heartbreaking and inspiring oral history of 9/11. In order to NeverForget, we must also Know And Remember. I highly recommend this book.

You said "what punishment of gods are not gifts. Do you really believe that?" @andersoncooper, choking back tears, asks Stephen Colbert, as they discuss grief.

"Yes," replies the comedian. "It's a gift to exist and with existence comes suffering. There's no escaping that."

one of my favorite excerpts from my interview with @StephenAtHome. This question he embraces left me stunned when i first read it, and i can’t stop thinking about his answer. It has helped me, and i hope it helps others.
