from the Editors

We've probably bitten off more than we can chew this week. We're sure it would take a year's worth of Sentinel issues devoted to the topic of "love" just to begin to explore such an important subject. When you think of the number of books written about love, songs sung about love, poems recited about love, and all the words said about love, it's clear that this is something people give thought to more than just occasionally.

But what exactly is love? We found twenty-seven definitions for the word in Webster's Third New International Dictionary (unabridged). Yet, even armed with Webster's wisdom, most people would probably feel that there's still a lot to learn about what love actually means to life and living. This issue of the Sentinel, we hope, will cause you to think about love—what it is and what it isn't—and what love means to the way you live your life, the kind of person you are, and the kind of person you want to be.
