Love and freedom

I want to share a link that leads to a short reading I admire when it comes to politics and especially hits home during something as hurtful as the current situation at the border right now. This link is from the UU College of Social Justice and was written by one of hero’s, Dr. bell hooks. Please click the link below and become inspired by a love ethic.

Enjoy!

32 year old wife, stepmother, dog mom, daughter, granddaughter, sister, Aunt and friend. Lover of all humans, animals, books, traveling, crafting, painting, photography, learning new things, meeting new people, experiencing new things, listening, sharing, and most importantly, LIVING BY A LOVE ETHIC. “Love ethic” is an phrase adapted by one of my favorite authors, Dr. bell hooks. In one of her books, hooks defined love according to Peck's definition in his 1978 book The Road Less Traveled: love is “the will to extend one's self for the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's spiritual growth” (as cited in hooks, 2000. (2000). All about love: New visions.
