can we talk about how this fucking pbs show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal

Ok no but can we talk about this entire episode? 

It was called April 9th, and it was actually a response to the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t talk about the attacks themselves, but rather focused on teaching kids to deal with the all of the emotions that they might be feeling as a result. They set up a situation that might evoke similar emotions in children: a massive fire at the school.

Arthur’s dad was in the fire, so (as you can see above), Arthur is constantly worried about his dad’s safety.

Sue Ellen is grieving because her journal, which contained a huge amount of precious memories, was destroyed in the fire. Muffy is confused why she can’t just cheer Sue Ellen up by giving her a new journal.

Buster wasn’t at school that day, and feels confused and guilty that he isn’t sad about the fire like the other kids. He then befriends the school janitor, who has to retire due to an injury that, at his age, is pretty serious.

Binky actually saw the flames, and is constantly traumatized by the event. He doesn’t tell anyone because he feels like he would lose his tough-guy reputation if he admitted that he was scared.

The episode teaches kids that all of these emotions are perfectly normal and natural, that there’s not one right way to feel, and that even if it takes a while, things are going to be okay.

The thing that makes this show so great, in my opinion, is that it knows that kids are intellegent and strong enough to deal with these things if you present them in the right way. It doesn’t hide them, it doesn’t sugar coat them, it just presents them in a way that children can understand and shows them how to deal with them.

Happy 4/13, everyone!  I figured y’all deserved a little something for the occasion, so here’s a hastily-compiled and slightly silly preview for After Us.

Yes, it really is nowhere near done right now and late 2015 really is an optimistic estimate.  I hope everyone will respect that and be patient!  If you want to watch me work on it some time, there’s a link to my livestream account on my YouTube profile and you can follow me there. uvu

Fluorescent blue and green Fluorite
Cubic, gemmy crystals of fluorite on matrix from world famous locality - Rogerly Mine. Medium luster. Fluorite cubes are well coloured - green in artificial light with a strong blue daylight fluorescence, and an even stronger purple-white fluorescence under long wave UV light. This amazing fluorite crystals change colour in different lights - in natural light they are blue, in artificial light they are green.
