Editor’s Letter


December is a period of contrast when it comes to how we spend our days.  On the one hand, it’s a time for quiet and self-care in the spirit of slowing down for the winter season.  On the other, this month is a festive and convivial one — sparkling with the social time that we crave as the holidays roll in.

If there’s one thing the past few years have instilled in us, it’s a new instinct to take nothing for granted.  The ability to gather with friends and loved ones is something that we have never held more dear, as is the privilege of enjoying and sharing what we do here at Modern Citizen with our amazing community.  And today more than ever, we are grateful for our voices, freedoms, and responsibility to affect and contribute to positive progress when we are called and able to do so.

We are wishing you a festive and restorative December, with a soft landing into the year ahead.  Our team has so much to be thankful for this year, and so much to be excited about as we look forward to 2023.  We’ve said it before, but you are the reason we do what we do — and that in and of itself gives us every reason to celebrate.

— Modern Citizen
