A Few Words from the Editors As difficult as it is for me to admit this, there are times when words are simply not enough to express the rage, despair, heartache, and tumult of the times we live in. It would be easy to accuse one man for the terrible state in which America finds itself, but if we are honest, we know Donald J. Trump is only the personification of so much that is wrong in the world today. America was never the country we thought it was, and it is only by dint of good luck that some of us have had the privilege of turning our backs to the inherent evil in our midst. It seems though, that a reckoning is upon us. As Davyne Verstandig says in her poem “Finding meaning in a deadly virus”, Something out there Greater than us Something we did not choose Chose us We can only hope that something better will come of this, but if it doesn’t, it will be time to find a new path, “to learn what we forgot -- love and the temporariness of time”. Thanks for listening. The Editors
