OUR harvest, or summertime “Thanksgiving” issue, is one of our favorites. When we looked back at this year’s stories, we were moved by the fact that, even under the most difficult circumstances, the writers’ words were bright and full of “song” — both literally and figuratively.  Needless to say, we have no doubt that they are not the “exception,” but the rule. —Mrs. Chips
