Katie Faust is one of those humans that when I first met her, it felt like she was the sister I never had.
She is brilliant. Hilarious. Bold. Scattered. Deep. And so relevant.
The ministry she founded and runs, Them Before Us, says this on their website.
"There’s nothing exceptional about the people behind Them Before Us. We aren’t professional writers or pedigreed activists. We are just people who think that children deserve to be the primary consideration when considering what is best for, well, children. We are ordinary people willing to state the cost that children, as well as society, pay when children are deprived of their fundamental needs."
Isn't that what needs to be said out loud more often ?
Oh...and she's also on the Organising (that's European for organizing) Committee of a new group called the Alliance for Responsible Citizenship - created as a counter to the World Economic Forum.
She's in good company on that Committee with the likes of Jordan Peterson, former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, Victor Davis Hanson, Riva Melissa Tez, and Vivek Ramaswamy among others. The right response to the formation of this group would seem to be - "It's About Time!"
Hope you can tune in today.
