Dear students, friends, and community members, Thank you for joining us for another edition of The Howard Line, the student magazine of Howard Area Community Center's Adult Education Program. We have over 100 writers represented here from 17 countries, and we are thrilled to share their stories with you. Students wrote on topics such as their everyday observations of their new country, war, where they come from, and words of advice for loved ones. We truly hope you enjoy their stories! Special thank you to all the writers who contributed and the teachers and tutors who supported them. Thank you also to Monica Murillo for the inspired cover art! Enjoy!
