I am so happy that I renewed by subscription for another year, mainly because of stories like Robin Milonas'. You have done an excellent job of keeping your readers up-to-date on the stories that matter. When I happened to come across a copy of your magazine a few years ago, the story about a woman who was involved in the prosecuting process of the Rwandan killers was what drew me in. I've been a subscriber ever since.I have wondered many times of the state of the health of the soldiers when they return home. We expect so much of our military and we must make sure they receive the best support and care possible to address their mental as well as physical needs. No soldier should have to prove that PTSD has changed their lives. We are all human, and the mind can take but so much. I never considered PTSD a sign of weakness, but of strength. How can anyone go through life and not feel something for their fellow man? Robin is stronger than she thinks and she is doing what she can to enable herself to move on. The mind can heal. I will keep Mrs. Milonas in my prayers as well as the thousands of others who have witnessed such tragic events. Kudos to Ms. Farr for her excellent writing.
I was really enjoying the article about Barbara Bowers Bigford until I came to the line that read "manufacturer in China" ... and then I stopped reading. Please highlight women who founded companies in America with American labor. The outsourcing of jobs has contributed to this country's downfall and I am trying my hardest not to support companies who don't invest in America.
The cover photo of Christy Turlington Burns that I received in my June issue of MORE was not only depressingly bland in color, but I found myself quickly scanning the article to find out what was “ailing” her. She looked sickly and emaciated, reminiscent of the Twiggy / Kate Moss look I thought we had all recovered from. I “get” that the photographer was trying for a stylized look similar to the late Audrey Hepburn, but I was glad that someone at MORE realized the error and changed the cover photo on the newsstand edition. Apologies are due to Ms. Turlington Burns for the error in judgment.
