A Literary Magazine of the United Nations SRC Society of Writers

Dear Friends

We welcome you and the return of Reflections magazine in a new on-line format. We look forward to reconnecting with friends and colleagues of the United Nations community and the opportunity to share your unique voices and vision with a larger audience.
Through the pandemic we have learned that we cannot live in isolation and though for many, a time of tragedy, it has strengthened us individually, as communities and together as a oneness-world-family. It has revealed our vulnerabilities as well as our strengths, and though our physical space may have diminished, we have expanded our heart-space in countless ways and acts of self-giving.
We have been surprised by our resiliency and creativity and have held onto and moved forward with hope, the theme of our upcoming seminal issue.

We look forward to hearing from you. 

Wishing you good health, with gratitude,

Bhikshuni Weisbrot, President
