|COVER ART-PAINTING BY ALLEN FORREST|
Welcome to the May edition of IVJ. Many new and returning friends have dropped in to lend their voice to this issue, so please join us in welcoming them. I believe it is a fantastic issue full of beauty, light, growth, and truth. To all our service members, past and present...Thank you, and Happy Memorial Day. To every person raising, nurturing, and loving our children...Thank you, and Happy Mother's Day!
A special thanks to Allen Forrest for contributing his georgous painting for our cover page.
