The gift of love is what makes our world spin on its axis; the most paramount of treasures The greatest gift to the human race Give love freely; give it to yourself, and to life! What a spectacular thing to be addicted to? Intoxicate your loved ones with it God gave it to us so we could pay it forward For it makes life worth living, and worth fighting for We must give it as much as we receive it This country of ours would be a better place if we all treat each other with respect and dignity and it starts with the gift of love. Let's reject hate. Demons of hatred take our souls hostage and leave it destined for destruction. Hate is... ultimately slain by the healing power of love We could make this world a better place by helping to lift people drained by misfortune with care and compassion, dissolving their woes If we could do something that extraordinary then our reason for living shall not be in vain. Let's unhook the tentacles of hate by giving....the gift of love! Submitted for...

Your poem is a direct challenge to change the way we relate to one another! I totally agree with you! Will remind myself of your challenge the next time another driver cuts me off in traffic! Congratulations on your HM. In my prayers. Let love loose!

Re: our commander in chief, I do agree his tweets are not to his long-term best interests. But I will say, if I had come into the office of president facing the vitreous hate that so many have for him, I can't say what I might have done. Great write, Edward, love the end with your positively positive answer.
