Color lines

Thanks to all those brave souls, the trail blazers that has gone before us. They who fell in love, back when white society wasn't so excepting or was intolerant of mix marriage. Love is made of tough stuff, couples had it ruff. So, for a while, some lovers even kept a low profile. This has been going on for a long while. But they took a leap of faith anyway, staying to themselves. Love will not be denied. Now days you see mixed couples everywhere... Not just in and around military bases. Today it’s not a shock, but a pleasant surprise. Seeing couples and their kids, from different ethnic back grounds. And even different size, skinny and obese. Both straight and Gay, more than just Black and white. As Day follows Night, all kinds of races mixing it up. One has only to open your eyes to see, the mixing of the of the melting pot. Which is hot!! Love truly concurs all. God has taken the spoon and stirred the melting pot, from the top of the rim to the bottom of the bowl.

This is absolutely wonderful. I am a mutt, and all of my friends are mutts - mixing every kind of race, color, and creed and proud of it. A fantastic tribute to all of us, Robert.
