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. ♥️

Two years ago, a tweet featuring the invoice for a fixed boiler went viral because the customer, a 91-year-old woman with leukemia, received the services for free.

"No charge for this lady under any circumstances," the invoice read. "We will be available 24 hours to help her and keep her as comfortable as possible."

The repair was done by James Anderson, 52, a father-of-five from Burnley, England. "James is an absolute star, it was overwhelming to see that it cost nothing," the woman's daughter told CNN.

I live in a family with various food intolerances. Thankfully, none of them are super serious, but we are familiar with the challenges of finding alternatives to certain foods, constantly checking labels, and asking restaurants about their ingredients.

In our family, if someone accidentally eats something they shouldn't, it's mainly a bit of inconvenient discomfort. For those with truly life-threatening food allergies, the stakes are much higher.

I can't imagine the ongoing stress of deadly allergy, especially for parents trying to keep their little ones safe.

Recent tragic mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton have sparked a lot of conversation and action on the state level over the issue of gun control. But none may be as encouraging as the most recent one, in which 145 CEOs signed a letter urging the U.S. Senate to take action at their level.
