In this issue we wanted to take a look back at several of the stories we’ve included in transform. reflecting on their importance. Given that July is a month in which many, many countries have won their independence perhaps it’s appropriate. No doubt they were all looking toward where they were going, rejoicing about what they’d achieved, relieved that everything was behind them. Transformation is one of the themes that comes up again and again in these pieces. Maybe because so much of going forward is about making things different, not staying with things as they have been simply because we’ve grown accustomed to them–or because we’re afraid of what may lie ahead.
I hope these stories reflect not just of where we’ve been, but also where we’re going…as a movement, as a community, as a people.
