On Tuesday, July 24, singer Demi Lovato was hospitalized in Los Angeles reportedly due to a drug overdose.

Hours after initial reports surfaced, a spokesperson for the artist released a statement saying, "Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers, and support."

Messages poured in from around the globe, sending Lovato well wishes and positive thoughts. One of those messages came from the London Underground — and its sentiment is radiating with fans everywhere.

The heartfelt letter, written to Lovato on a service information board in London's Underground, says what so many people are feeling right now.

The letter, which channels a few of Lovato's songs, like "Skyscraper," "Gift of a Friend," and "Tell Me You Love Me," reads in full:

"Dear Demi Lovato,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We are thinking of you, your family and friends, and all of your fans around the world too.

May a skyscraper of strength help you to recover. When it comes to mental health health, we all need each other; may the gift of a friend get you back on the mend. Give your heart a break, there's no need to pretend.

You don't have to say, 'tell me you love me.' Demi, we most certainly do. You are a light in this world, and through the darkness, we are praying that you shine through."





The letter was written by the group All on the Board — a London-based group that pens clever, funny, or (in this case) heartfelt notes on service boards in the city's underground transit system. Lovato's letter, the group confirms, was written on a board at North Greenwich station.

Many of Lovato's fans replied to the kindhearted sign and tweet, which has garnered more than 4,000 likes at the time of this writing. "I almost cried reading this," one Twitter user wrote. "SO BEAUTIFUL. Thank you so much."

It's telling that the world's responding to Lovato's hospitalization not only with an outpouring of love but with admiration and an acknowledgement of her strength.

Many reactions, much like actress Lili Reinhart's, comment on what a positive difference Lovato has made simply by being open about her own struggles — whether it be drug abuse, depression, addiction, or body image issues.

Reinhart said Lovato has been "an idol to me in how she spoke so openly about mental health."

Lovato's hospitalization doesn't change the fact that she's a role model for those struggling through similar challenges. It doesn't change the fact that she's helped push critical conversations forward about mental health and self-worth in meaningful ways. And it doesn't change the fact that, for many fans around the world, she remains a hero.

Thinking of you, Demi. ♥️

From the time she was a little girl, Abby Recker loved helping people. Her parents kept her stocked up with first-aid supplies so she could spend hours playing with her dolls, making up stories of ballet injuries and carefully wrapping “broken” arms and legs.

Recker fondly describes her hometown of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, as a simple place where people are kind to one another. There’s even a term for it—“Iowa nice”—describing an overall sense of agreeableness and emotional trust shown by people who are otherwise strangers.

Driven by passion and the encouragement of her parents, Recker attended nursing school, graduating just one year before the unthinkable happened: a global pandemic. One year into her career as an emergency and labor and delivery nurse, everything she thought she knew about the medical field got turned upside down. That period of time was tough on everyone, and Nurse Recker was no exception.

The Emperor of the Seas.

Imagine retiring early and spending the rest of your life on a cruise ship visiting exotic locations, meeting interesting people and eating delectable food. It sounds fantastic, but surely it’s a billionaire’s fantasy, right?

Not according to Angelyn Burk, 53, and her husband Richard. They’re living their best life hopping from ship to ship for around $44 a night each. The Burks have called cruise ships their home since May 2021 and have no plans to go back to their lives as landlubbers. Angelyn took her first cruise in 1992 and it changed her goals in life forever.

“Our original plan was to stay in different countries for a month at a time and eventually retire to cruise ships as we got older,” Angelyn told 7 News. But a few years back, Angelyn crunched the numbers and realized they could start much sooner than expected.

It takes a special type of person to become a nurse. The job requires a combination of energy, empathy, clear mind, oftentimes a strong stomach, and a cheerful attitude. And while people typically think of nursing in a clinical setting, some nurses are driven to work with the people that feel forgotten by society.

We're dancing along too.

Art can be a powerful unifier. With just the right lyric, image or word, great art can soften those hard lines that divide us, helping us to remember the immense value of human connection and compassion.

This is certainly the case with “Pasoori,” a Pakistani pop song that has not only become an international hit, it’s managed to bring the long divided peoples of India and Pakistan together in the name of love. Or at least in the name of good music.

A couple enjoying a glass of wine.

In the 1988 Disney classic “Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” the titular character is in an unlikely relationship with his voluptuous wife Jessica. Roger is a frantic, anxious rabbit with a penchant for mischief, while Jessica is a quintessential ’40s bombshell who stands about a foot and a half taller and isn’t “bad,” just “drawn that way.”

When private investigator Eddie Valiant asked Jessica what she sees in “that guy?” she replies, “He makes me laugh.”

This type of couple may seem like something we only see in the movies, but don’t underestimate the power of humor when it comes to attractiveness. A new study published in Evolutionary Psychology found that being humorous is the most effective way to flirt for both men and women.
