With another year almost coming to a close, we look back at the year as we tend to do at the end of things. There were incredible, momentous events that occurred that were unforgettable; and there were also, unfortunately, the things that made us unsure of the world that we lived in.
Before the year ends, lets remeber the talented writers that we sadly lost this year. We dedicate a moment in memoriam of the writers we lost in 2021.
