As I write this editorial, more than half of eligible Americans have received at least 1 dose of a vaccine against the deadly pandemic virus that has reordered our lives. A year ago, it did not seem possible. I continue to reflect on the extraordinary scientific efforts and expertise that made this possible. While we know that scientific evidence is always changing, this feat of science is an historic future.

Pediatric Physical Therapy publishes the evidence, both scientific and clinical expertise, that supports practice. I have the privilege of reading and reviewing the evidence that is submitted to the journal, and I continue to be impressed by the knowledge and expertise that guides our practice. Thank you to everyone who is committed to providing the evidence for practice and to those using the evidence in practice.
