  • Dear Chief SLW! Activist Jerry:  

    Thank you for what you chose to do in your retirement, and inspiring me in mine.

    I just forwarded SLW! eNews to a young friend of mine with this note: “Jerry Iversen does just what I like to do. He sends links to his friends…though on a much bigger scale!” YES, She had just asked me what fake news was, and here’s info on it in your eNews. You are role modeling what I see as untapped potential in our largely youth-oriented society: retirees being super activists through communications!!!

    Thank you for writing so accessibly. I’ve sent your info to friends who are aged 30’s to 80’s, faith-based and not, city and country around the U.S. I love how SLW! is down-to-earth, practical, action-oriented, stance-taking and strong yet not strident.

    Thank you for creating your online community which is a movement as well. Simple Living Works! offers such a welcome anchoring effect in these turbulent times with the new administration and its policies. There is always something refreshing in SLW! to open my mind and heart to new possibilities, and to share it around.
