What's done is done and over with, and one must go on to something else, for there is nothing worse than remorse without possible solution. Action! Action!

The Boston Globe‚Äôs editors and I agreed in December 2015 that Reflection for the Day will no longer appear in the newspaper, ending a 32-year run since the feature was launched by visionary Boston Globe editor Thomas Winship. I will continue to publish the Reflections on this website every day, including most Sundays, into 2016 and beyond. To my many regular print readers through the years I extend deep gratitude and warm wishes for the New Year. —Thomas B. Fitzpatrick, Jr.
