For many of us, Valentine's Day is a time to enjoy the dearest person in our lives. We hope for something picturesque, a romantic dinner by candlelight, a new set of lingerie to try on, and some good ol' fashion lovin'. We are trained to expect something perfect.
However, life and love aren't perfect. Easy, happy love is for the silver screen; real-life relationships are much more complex. This photo, whatever you think about the Iraq War, is an apt reminder of the imperfect and more deeply authentic love of which we are capable.
Enough of my rambling. What do you think of the photo?
