We Go on Loving

A person's hands, reaching up from the bottom of the frame, making a heart shape with their fingers.

What makes us human beings so uniquely wonderful in this puzzling universe is that we never give up on love.

Against all odds, with no guarantee of being loved in return, out of the hate and hurt so often handed us, in the face of the sad suffering history has let us see, we go on loving.

What deep respect we deserve for this capacity of ours to make love out of anything and to let it last.
