This viral, heartfelt letter to Demi Lovato written in London's tube packs the feels.

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. ♥️

Americans are more interested in politics than ever these days. More voted in the 2020 election than in any other in the past 100 years. Over 65% of the voting-eligible cast a ballot in the contentious fight between Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

"People are very excited and paying attention even though there are all this bad news and high 'wrong track' numbers in the country," Nancy Zdunkewicz, managing editor at Democracy Corps, told The Hill.

It's wonderful to see that a greater number of Americans are standing up to be counted and demanding their voices be heard. But it's also the symptom of a deep level of discontent many people feel about their country.

While generational stereotypes don't apply to everyone, there are significant differences between how Baby Boomers (1944 to 1964), Gen X (1965 to 1980), and Millenials (1981 to 1996) were raised.

Baby Boomers tended to grow up in homes where one parent stayed home and the other worked outside of the house. Millennials are known for having over-involved "helicopter" parents.

Then, there's Gen X.

The smaller, cooler generation that, according to a 2004 marketing study "went through its all-important, formative years as one of the least parented, least nurtured generations in U.S. history."

The U.S. Surgeon General credits the new surge in COVID cases to "pandemic fatigue," but it's nothing compared to what healthcare workers on the frontlines are going through. TIME recently reported that nurses are experiencing burnout, but it often goes unseen. A nurse recently employed a social media trend to draw attention to the behind the scenes fatigue.

An ICU nurse posted her own "how it started/how it's going" photo on Twitter, and long story short, it's not going that great. The before photo of Kathryn, an ICU nurse in Nashville, was taken in the middle of April right after she completed nursing school. The after photo revealed just how much literal sweat and tears healthcare workers put in while treating people during the pandemic.
