Letter from the Editor, September 2002
By Kara L.C. Jones

There is so much going on this month with the whole September 11th remembrances. It is interesting to see our whole culture grieving or at least admitting that we live in the face of grief every day. I think for the major part of this month's editor letter, I'd like to ask you to please read my article in the Poetry Therapy column. That says it all for me.

Here in the Loss Journal, we have so much information. I hope that something in it will prove helpful or inspirational or comforting. Please be in touch with us if you have questions or reactions you'd like to share. My heart to all of you, wherever you find yourself on the grief and creativity path.

Miracles to you!
