How'd we do?

"How'd we do?" Continued...

Issue: "Year in Review 2002," Dec. 28, 2002

Our main task. Although I hope we always do both in a helpful way, WORLD is here more to add perspective than it is to report all the news. It's important to us that you say to yourself once or twice as you read every page, "I didn't know that." But it's even more important that you say to yourself fairly often, "I never thought of it that way before." When, sometime in 2003, you get your WORLD renewal notice, I hope you'll remember that reflection.
