A Letter from Luna
Dear New Moon Girl – yes, that’s you!
You are AWESOME. You amaze me every day with how you go out in the world and do what you do. You are a brave girl who brings your whole self – your feelings and your thoughts and your body and your spirit – everywhere you go.
You mean so much to me because I’m the spirit of NMG. I’ve been here since the beginning and I’m always here for every girl who needs someone to listen.
Lucky me, you tell me about what you love, who inspires you, and the creative depths of your imagination!!
You send stories, poems, opinions, and photos to NMG. You make drawings and paintings and digital art of Luna Tics (yup, they’re named for me!) and for my Art Gallery in the magazine and online.
You tell us about your adventures in Go Girl. You ask the other members for advice on difficult and embarrassing stuff in Ask A Girl in our magazine and online. And you give awesome advice to each other there, too.
You give your honest opinions in polls and conversations about important issues. You show respect and compassion even for girls you disagree with. You listen to them and think things through and are willing to consider changing your mind.
Your feelings are powerful and help you keep in touch with your inner self. You hate injustice and you do what you can to make the world a better place for everyone. You stand up together in sisterhood with those who are not treated fairly.
You like to know the stories of women and girls from the past and present and from all over the world–especially about women and girls left out of history, textbooks, movies, games, politics, business, science, arts, awards, activism, and too, too many other places.
That’s why we invented NMG – to give you and all girls this place to share and hear the stories of women and girls told by the girls and women themselves. You make this happen every day when you contribute your creations to NMG and put them out in the world so everyone can see how valuable it is to Listen To Girls!
Thank you for being part of our community of girls, parents and allies supporting each other, and building an equal world for all!
