Dear Johnny...

...we miss you!

Thank you for your amazing gift of skating,
your courage, your brilliant sense of humor,
and for all the extraordinary beauty you bring to this world.

Thank you for being in our lives.
Thank you for letting us be in yours.

So very proud to be your fans.

We love you always.

— from Binky, 
and every fan who has written me this week 
to say exactly that.

Me too.

If you’d like to, please join me in letting Johnny know how much we love and support him by tweeting to him, posting on his Facebook fan page, commenting on his Instagram pics, sending him some love on Weibo, or commenting here on the blog... whatever way works for you. Even if it’s just tweeting a simple “♥” or “<3” to him, please tell him that we’re with him and we’re excited to see whatever comes next in his journey!

must endure burning.
