End of 2021 Reflections

Editor's Note: It seems like 2022 has been longer than only a few months... there is a lot happening in the world at the moment. So I think time lapses are only natural when we're focused on, essentially, survival. My way of saying...sorry for the delay! I know 2021 seems like it's long gone. I think it's also safe to say the last few years have been, at the very least, challenging for a lot of us. As a reflection exercise, our authors were asked to 'interview' their friends, family, and/or support workers.

Also, be sure to check out Joseph's individual reflection in another article!

Happy reading!
