Publisher's Notes

For a good portion of the world's population, this weekend holds special significance. It is Easter weekend, a time to commemorate the resurrection of Christ. It signifies the conquest of life over death, belief over doubt, and light over darkness. Yesterday (Good Friday) and tomorrow (Easter Sunday) millions of people will attend to religious rites and renew their belief in a salvation confirmed and an Atonement realized.

Obviously not everyone is a Christian; this world is nothing if not diverse. Even for those without religious belief, Easter weekend can be special, as it is often a time for families and friends to gather and enjoy the warming weather of spring. (Daffodils are starting to give way to tulips in our area.)

Regardless of how you approach this holiday, I hope that you enjoy the opportunity to pause and reflect on what it means in your life. Whether it holds religious significance to you or not, I wish you a happy Easter and the best for the season.

—Allen
