A reminder to myself: when you don't see an obvious source of light, try looking at the situation from a different perspective.

Foreword

Humanitas, the literary journal of the Medical University of South Carolina.

I would first like to thank all the writers and artists who submitted their work this year; as always, it was a community-wide effort. Their creativity and drive are key to this project and what continues to push us every year. The University also deserves our thanks for their eagerness in supporting Humanitas and other community-oriented activities on campus that bring us closer together as one family.

Each one of us as an individual is unique in our own creativity, experiences, and beliefs. These individualistic moments create the pieces you see laid out across these pages, a snapshot, a stanza, a phrase, a stroke of imagination and personality. All of these come together in one way or another to relate to you, the reader, to connect our stories, beliefs, and emotions as one, one community. Please enjoy the pages before you, pages of captured moments, feelings, and expressions projected for you our fellow reader.

In closing, I would like to give special thanks and recognition to everyone that made this year’s edition a success including all the staff editors and behind the scenes contributors. A warm thank you and much appreciation to Tabitha Samuel and Lisa Kerr, the past three years; you both welcomed me into the Humanitas family and let me express my creativity. Thank you both and never stop doing what you do. You are the drivers of creativity on campus.
