I love you . . .

Often, when I’ve heard a celebrity say, “I love you all,” I’d think, “How is that possible? You’ve never even met me.”

But their saying so always gave me a warm feeling, a little boost. So I’ve often written the same, “I love you all,” in my mailings or blog posts.

Today I read a little message that makes me even more confident about telling you, whether we’ve met or not, I love you.

It’s this: If someone who never met you can hate you for your race, or sexuality, or politics, or whatever reason, if they can hate you sight unseen, then surely you and I can love each other sight unseen.

We’re all in this together. And if doing what we can to make one another’s lives better, if that isn’t love, I don’t know what is.

    Lester, I love you. The games I own with your name on them are dear to me. The fact that you are a good human being is icing on the cake.

    Thank you for saying this, Lester. I’ve often felt awkward saying this, afraid it might be misunderstood but wanting it said anyway. Your explanation makes me feel … yes, this is right. You are loved. Sight unseen or long apart, we are indeed in this together.
