Guys, every month or two, I try extra hard to promote a story that I feel (rightly or wrongly) is especially meaningful. Fate and Facebook are working against me on this one, so I’m tagging some regular readers.

I’ve been offline because of a power outage, and it caused me to do some hard thinking and some research about rural LGBTQ isolation and lonliness — a hidden crisis in the United States.

But there are solutions and ALL of us can act to make things better. Will you give this a look, please?

Thanks!

Jim
