Our featured image by photographer David Rhodes portrays the beauty and fragility of a child. He captured her fatigue of waiting; we are all waiting for the world to come together, and we must be the catalyst. We are about to spring forward, and we must do it with purpose, lessons learned, and insight. Where do we start? Of course, as individuals, we do what we can, positively impacting conditions. However, we look to the children for hope, the innocents that know so much more than we do about love before we get our hands on them. We instill insight into the possibility and action of healing the world.
