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 Tom 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 Fitzpatrick
