Editor's Note

We all made it to the year 2022. I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year! May your year be filled with love, hope, grace, and gratitude. A new year provides us with an opportunity to rekindle our excitement for pursuing our goals and objectives. Here is our second issue, which reflects and focuses on heartwarming and exceptional content.

 

Winter and the holiday season brings fresh ideas and energy to life, resulting in an increase in innovation and opportunities for experimentation. Writing is perilous, and publishing is much more so. Writing is a translation of words ready to be shared. Writing may be revolutionary, revitalizing, and uniting.

 

At the time of this writing, our previous issue has been read all over the world extensively, and with this edition, we are poised to significantly expand our reach. This volume features the voices of contemporary poets and authors. We have also worked tirelessly to foster worldwide cultural understanding. We have already shared information about countries and religions on our website. We constantly share articles and informative pieces as well.

 

Now it’s time to congratulate the entire team of The Compass for bringing another stunning issue for our readers. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to our contributors and readers because without you there is no journal.

 

Check out the beautiful compilation of writings in our second issue. I hope you will take the time to read what the content of the magazine has to offer. This issue has so much to read, so much to ponder and so much to learn.
