The contributors in this issue speak through the lens of looking back and taking stock with frankness more so than nostalgia. The pieces brought together in this issue show that the path of breaking silence involves fortifying oneself against negative talk, downfalls, plateaus, secrets, and other moments that masquerade as failure but are actually periods of wood-shedding in which we are working to transform struggle into fuel for our future interventions.
