The Real Meaning of Valentine's Day

Two very interesting stories jumped out at me today. The first one was about one of the story of St. Valentine.

The Bloody History of St. Valentine

I’d never heard of that version of St. Valentine, so it was very interesting since today is St. Valentine’s Day.

Then tonight I read about Ellen Page, a young lady of great talent. She garnered much acclaim in the movie "Juno", when she was only 20 years old.

If you live in a world where you don't know one single lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender person, then allow me to introduce you to Ellen Page, who's unexpected announcement showed courage and eloquence.

Ellen Page's Eloquent Valentine's Day Speech

Take the time to watch her full speech. Listen to her voice quake and as she continues, her hand shakes harder as her other hand begin to clench, perhaps to control her emotions.

Valentine's Day is to commemorate St. Valentine, the priest who married people and was killed for it.

Ellen's bravery today exemplifies the same bravery in the name of love.

Happy Valentine's Day 2014
