Do You Believe in Love?

Via on Nov 25, 2011

Love makes our world go ’round.

It’s what we all want. It drives us. It motivates us. It keeps us up at night. If  you’ve ever been in love––or if your heart still hopes to find it––why would you deny someone else that same chance? This isn’t about politics. This isn’t anyone’s agenda. This is about love.

It would be easy for me to say, “I’m straight, not my problem.”  But I get hung up on the injustice of it all. Martin Luther King Jr. wisely said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” He was right. This is serious stuff. If we allow anyone among us to be treated unjustly, it hurts us all.

But the larger truth is, I’m a romantic. I believe in love. I believe in love––for everyone.

Stand up for love. Speak out for love. Vote for love.

It’s time.

About Kate Bartolotta

Kate Bartolotta is the strongest girl in the world. She is the love child of a pirate and a roller derby queen. She hails from the second star to the right. She doesn't know how to behave with all the apples and ibexes. She doesn't suffer from her eight million freckles, she loves them! Like a rolling stone, Kate gathers no moss. Kate loves kale, being barefoot, Dr. Seuss, singing too loudly, gallivanting, palindromes, blackberries and has far too many books for her own good. When she's not writing, you can find her practicing yoga, running in the woods, playing with her kids, devouring a book, planting dandelions, changing the world and doing her dishes. Kate does not play the accordion. She is a massage therapist, writer and a compassionate friend to all. This year Kate aspires to finally give up on learning to knit and will instead spend that time putting a little bit more of her heart on the page. Connect with Kate on Facebook and Twitter
