Today is also Loving Day…

Good afternoon, everyone...

Today is the 41st anniversary of Loving Day, named for the Lovings, that could not live in their home state of Virginia because it was one of 15 states that did not recognize interracial marriage in the 1950s.  The Supreme Court finally made their decision that legalized interracial
marriage in the United States on June 12, 1967.  Loving Day celebrations commemorate the anniversary of the Loving decision every year on or around June 12th.

So, inquiring minds want to know, have you loved someone today?
