seeing the bright side

WHILE WE LIVE AT A TIME WHEN DIVISION is the norm; when biases and beliefs seem static and immobile; when hard science is debatable; when journalism is devalued; when humanity is stripped from those in cells, centers and shelters; when it’s all just too much to organize in our heads, art calls to the optimism within us and beckons us to breathe. When I was invited to guest-edit this issue, TIME’s second special issue devoted to optimism, it was on a particularly dreary day. The national headlines were what we’ve come to expect: bigotry, poverty, injustice, trauma, trouble. I weighed my own feelings of despair and doubt against the idea of reveling in an experience dedicated to optimism. The choice was easy. I wanted to explore the other side. And so,…

BEHIND THE COVER To illustrate an issue on optimism, artist Nelson Makamo thought a portrait of a child would be a natural choice. Adults forget there’s “beauty in being a human being,” while “children are just discovering that,” as he puts it.

BEYOND WALLS The Feb. 4–11 special report on global migration by Haley Sweetland Edwards helped some readers see migrants “not as criminals, but as people escaping tough situations to improve their lives,” as @secretgcd tweeted. But others noted that their perspective on illegal border crossers wasn’t changed. “If the very first thing someone does on U.S. soil is break the law,” argued Ray Erikson of North Redington Beach, Fla., “why should they ever be trusted with citizenship?” Sandra W. Felkenes of Portland, Ore., was left wanting to know more about data that suggest migrants do not take Americans’ jobs, and Leslie Everett of Falcon Heights, Minn., had a different question—how to address issues like security in Central America so fewer flee in the first place. ‘I will pass this copy to…

dealing with drugs, beyond el chapo

TWO BRAZEN PRISON ESCAPES IS A LOT FOR A jury to look past. But in closing arguments at the federal trial of the world’s most famous accused drug lord, his lawyer pleaded with jurors to do just that. Look past the notorious nickname and headline-grabbing revelations of the trial, he implored in a voice first booming then softening, and see the man Joaquín Guzmán rather than “the myth of El Chapo.” But by the time jurors began deliberations on Feb. 4, government prosecutors had put forth what they called an “avalanche of evidence” that Guzmán—who had been facing the possibility of life in an American prison since his trial began in Brooklyn in November—deserved his infamy. Across three months, prosecutors had laid out text messages, audio recordings and dozens of testimonies…

on historic trip, pope francis tries to bridge gulfs

THE FIRST-EVER PAPAL VISIT TO THE Arabian Peninsula, the birthplace of Islam, was meant to build bridges between faiths. But shortly after Pope Francis touched down in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, on Feb. 3, he made the visit about more than just religion. The UAE is a member of the Saudi-led coalition that has been bombing Yemen since 2015, part of a campaign that the U.S. supports and that the Vatican has criticized. Francis risked his host’s displeasure to make a public point about the crisis in Yemen. GOOD RELATIONS For Pope Francis, who began his papacy by taking strides to improve interfaith dialogue, the historic visit was a chance to cement ties with Islamic leaders. Together with an influential imam, he signed a “document on…
