When Do You Know?

Something I've been giving a lot of thought to lately is KNOWING.  Specifically, when do you know you've found the right person?

The Power of Love

Love is a powerful force, subtle when it is present, but alarmingly potent when it is absent.  We should make it our mission to make sure that everybody who shares a moment of our lives feels a least a small morsel of love from us.

Dear Congress; Love, A Teacher
