As I was making the big sign for our store prior to the Valentine's Day few weeks ago, my boss asked me, "What is the Valentine's Day about?". I was stammering. I can give him answer but I am not sure of the right answer for that question. He then told me about the Valentine's Day 1929 Massacre in Chicago, that the mob were bathed in their own blood which was believed that was led by Al Capone; America's best known gangster and the single greatest symbol of the collapse of law and order in the United States during the 1920s Prohibition era. He lost me there. I was just listening, but I don't understand what it has to do with Valentine's day other than the fact that it happened on Valentine's Day.
Anyhow, whatever is the story behind this Valentine's Day, I am happy that this was created because I believe that some people who were not naturally loving in a daily basis, are trying to show some love on this day just for the sake of it. Knowing that this is a worldwide event, it is a good thing to know that on this day, it is LOVE that prevail everywhere on this earth.
However, sad to say that there are some people behind evil thoughts were trying to spread horrible things on this day, just like this one that I mentioned above. We also have similar stories in the Philippines.
To those people who don't show their love in a regular basis, take this chance to say your love to somebody. Although it is true that action speaks louder than voice, but sometimes words are sweeter to our hearts. Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
