Monthly Letter from the Editor

Happy November, Germies!

Because American Thanksgiving is coming up soon, I have been thinking a lot about the many things I am thankful for. There are the basics that I am so blessed to have, such as food, water, and a roof over my head, but I am most grateful for my wonderful friends and family members whom I love so much. It took me many years to find such amazing friends who I can confide in, and I will never cease to appreciate them and the love they show me.

Germ’s book theme of the month is Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights, and this tragic story full of abuse and toxic relationships reminds us all that not everyone is lucky enough to have a family who supports them and gives them the love that we all deserve.

So, Germies, this month I challenge you to reflect on the things and the people in your life. Appreciate the little things as well as the big, and be thankful for the people who have been there for you in both the good and bad times.

We here at Germ are thankful for you.

Thank you for being our bright place!
