“As we launch our 7th volume, we find ourselves in a time of crisis that calls on the best of our humanity. This is not a reality we could have imagined, yet it is one – as revealed in all the work of those who have contributed to the pages of PXJ over our first 6 years – we have been prepared for all along.” said Jason Wolf, Founding Editor of PXJ and President & CEO of The Beryl Institute. “And while we can all say we are never truly ready for a crisis of this proportion or impact, the collective spirit and commitment we have built together, and represented on the pages of this issue, will guide us forward in the days to come.”
