Letter From the Editor: From the Heart

by | Jan 2024

IT’S HOLDING the door open for the person behind you. It’s sending a sweet text when they cross your mind. It’s stopping by to say “hi” when they’ve had a bad day.

Showing up and showing love is like medicine for our souls. It lets us dance, sing, laugh, and
cry together. It lets us know that someone is saving us a seat at every table. We know that – while we may be off-key – there is someone to sing backup from the passenger seat. And when we have those really bad days, we know there is a shoulder waiting like a therapeutic tissue. These moments, while they may feel small, carry a heavy weight. It keeps the world from falling apart when it feels so fragile. It keeps our head above the water in the deepest, darkest oceans.

This issue of Good News is about celebrating our love. We’re not just talking about romantic love, either. We’re talking about the real love that can only come from the heart. Our community is full of actions that show love in every minute of every day. It can be as simple as a “Luv U” text or as kind as holding a door open.

We’re proud to share stories of love to make the community a better place. GN
