I celebrate this holiday as a reminder that I am not alone in this world and that there is hope at the end of the longest, darkest tunnels.
Love is in romantic songs and candlelit dinners, yes. But love is also in stricter gun control. Love is in comprehensive diversity and inclusion curriculum. Love is in increased access to mental healthcare for all.
I realized that these so-called imperfections had no bearing on the ability to have a colorful, vibrant, joyful, exuberant life!
