Loving Day, Every Day

A few years ago, I wrote a personal essay for MomsLA about Loving Day.  You can read it by clicking here.

A few days ago, my husband and I finally watched the 2016, Oscar-nominated film Loving.  The movie is based on the real life story of Richard and Mildred Loving whose own interracial marriage and legal battles ultimately made it possible for my husband and I to marry.

And on this day, Valentine’s Day, I’m thinking of Mr. and Mrs. Loving with gratitude.

  1. Beautiful message. Incredible movie. And yes, it was brave people like Mildred & Richard who helped advance our civic rights, and to show that love has no skin color.

  2. I pray the day will come when all people fulfil the Reverend King’s dream that each of us will be judged solely on the content of our character.
