May I ask you a question?
Do you remember what you are celebrating on valentines day?
Valentines day is a day commemorating the sorrowfull sacrifice of a man's life- for the woman he loves. The commemoration of a suicide- not of the giving of a gift, but of the breaking of ones heart.
It's a reminder of love for all yes, that is true- infact it even reminds me to do something special for Gee
, but not the kind of something you pay for.
You see the best valentines day present is not to get carried away this once a year,
but to be yourself for this whole day; to be honest and loving to your partner, to celebrate the shared life you have; and how well it works on a day to day level rather than conflicting and being impossible.
It is also a day where any sefless person can go to a sad lady or man, and tell them a few kind words to make them feel better for days. You see a girl at the train station sitting alone with no flower, no card and a glum look.
You ask her "what is wrong? did your boyfriend forget valentines day?".
If she cries and she has no valentine- you tell her she can be your valentine and give her a hug, (or visa versa if the person upset is a male!). Automatically their day is better. Something strange and exciting happened that day. It was not just a dull, lonely day where he/she was moping all day while friends were off eloping.
I know this was kind of off-topic for this blog, but there is so much attention payed to this day I thought it still important to say:
I am sure Iraq has no valentine today
Dear Iraq- don't cry today, someone loves you.
p.s I love you lots&lots&lots Geeeeee
