Darn it, Lesley. You made me cry in public at 37,000 feet over somewhere the other night when I read your editorial called Dreams from my daughter.
I, too, am getting ready to send our daughter off to college in the fall and I am so not ready although she is and that's what matters most.
Attached is a letter I wrote a couple of years ago when she turned 16 and flew off on a vacation by herself. When it was my turn to go off to college I never looked back, I never thought about how my parents felt, I just kept going and loved every minute of my freedom and my new life ahead of me. So, that's what I keep reminding myself about so I can get through what will be a very difficult time when we pull away and leave her at school in August.
LOVE your magazine, LOVE your editorials, and keep up the great writing and articles, etc.
I received MORE as a Christmas gift. It is so different from other "women's" magazines. the articles are insightful and I want to read every one of them. More has so much more than lipstick ads and what dress will look well on hippy figures. Please continue this good work- You have me for life!!
I read with great interest the very informative subject article, presenting statistics, percentages, and heartfelt comments from both sides of the issue. I may have overlooked it, but one large number missing was that of the 55,000,000 lives that have been aborted. As I watched the Walk for Life on EWTN, I felt that number should have been included in the article.

My assistant and I were excited when we discovered our first issue of More, thinking it would be a good magazine for patients in our small midwestern clinic. After reading the February 2013 issue, however, I was disappointed. We have a lot of older patients who would have been shocked by the short article that translated the beautiful words of past writers into ugly sexting. I realize this magazine is for younger, more sexually liberal women, but you would likely sell more copies with the good articles you have would speak to every woman.
I’m a big fan/ supporter of MORE. I thrilled at the arrival of a new month of pages to read.
This arrival like no other, I instantly view most pages & stop when instantly interested & know that I will review every page at a later date. The current issue Vol. 16 , Jan. 2013: Roe verses Wade. I cannot even read the pages....
How can ANYONE tell me what to do with my body! Not a man or Dr., nobody. My Husbands sister is a born again & preaches against pro choice. I am constantly disgusted that some women approve control of others choice.
I recently had a friend that had never voted due to upbringing & no interest. Because I told him about the right for women to have a choice. He voted for the 1st time at 40 years old because of my explanation & his understanding that NOBODY should tell anyone that they cannot choose what to do with their body. I was so proud to have influenced a vote.
Go Democrats, protect the female CHOICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was really disappointed to see the piece called "If great poets sexted..." This was in bad taste, and I am sure that many of your readers found it to be downright offensive.
The Roe v Wade article was really interesting, but I can't understand why the editors did not remove the name of the physician that was mentioned in Ginger Thew's submission. Publishing his name could put him and/or his staff in danger.
Please use more common sense when reviewing what to publish in this magazine.
