Every day, life presents us with obstacles. Big or small, we must confront these head-on in order to continue on.

Three stories in this issue of Klipsun exemplify the necessity of carrying on in the face of overwhelming obstacles.'Tutting the Pieces Back Together" by writer Emily Krahn tells of a local woman's turn to art for healing in the midst of loss.

In "Back to Basics," Shawn Query explores the day-to-day challenges Whatcom County residents face as they strive to overcome functional illiteracy.

Writer Ciara O'Rourke's story "Missing in Laos" tells of the actions family and friends are taking to bring a Western alum­nus home.

I highly encourage you to read these and other stories featu­red in this issue.
