“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F. Kennedy - - - - - - - - - - - - “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Loving One Another - Issue No. 003

Another great series I started on Peter's Daily Blog in 2007 that I will slowly introduce to my BLADE 7184 readers every Monday.  As the issues progressed I included a quote along with each picture, much the same way as my Kiss of the Week series on Thursdays.

Here is the third issue of Loving One Another.

Movies to Watch - The Christmas Shoes

I had heard this song many times before, but never really paid attention to it, till yesterday.  I mean, I understood it, and knew it was emotionally heart-wrenching, but it wasn't until I saw the movie that it made me value the importance of loving your fellow man.  There isn't one person in this world that I hate.  Not one solitary man, woman or child, and I'm a better person because of it.

Remember to tell the people in your life how much you love them, because there will come a time when they're gone and you'll wish you had.  I call my mother 5 times a week to tell her I love her, and I tell Ryan how much I love him every day.  Embrace it!  You'll be better for it.

I bought the DVD, "The Christmas Shoes" on Amazon.com and got it in the mail just on the nick of time, on Christmas Eve.  I knew Ryan wanted this movie for our collection, so we sat and watched it on Christmas Day.  Let me tell you, I cried, and cried, and cried.  It's a tear-jerker of a film.  I highly recommend it, if you're a Christmas movie aficionado.
The movie bounces between two families--the Layton household, where the father, Robert is so consumed with his work that he misses his daughter's recital; and the Andrews home, where the mother Maggie has been diagnosed with a fatal heart ailment. Desperate to make his mother's last moments happy, Maggie's son Nathan struggles to buy a pair of red dancing shoes that seem like a pair Maggie remembers from her childhood. Naturally, the lives of these families become intertwined, particularly when Robert's wife takes over Maggie's choral program--which topples the already troubled balance between Kate and Robert. Perhaps because Rob Lowe is usually stereotyped as glib and insincere. The Christmas Shoes feels surprisingly heartfelt. The earnestness of The Christmas Shoes surprises because the story originated in the famous country song of the same name, and movies based on songs rarely feel anything but plastic and contrived. There are certainly moments when The Christmas Shoes lays on the sentiment woefully thick, but you'd have to be an ogre not to be touched when Maggie and her husband have one last dance.  --Bret Fetzer on Amazon
