ABC: Trump Signs Executive Order He Says Will Keep Immigrant Families Together - "The president's move comes amid growing outrage over the practice of separating families and on the eve of House votes Thursday to address immigration."

Chicago Tribune: The Pain Disorder That Can Overcome Kids, Especially High-Achieving Teenage Girls - "The brain learns from behavior. To make pain less dangerous, a patient needs to go back to activities and reduce its significance. That means going back to school and sports and time with friends and not making decisions based on pain. For parents, this often goes against every instinct to protect their children."
