My message to you on Valentine's Day

14 February 2014, 13:01

I would like to start by saying that I am bit concerned people are getting the wrong impression about me. I am not on the verge of suicide or anything like that. I saw some comments on my previous article and I am NOT suicidal. Trust me on that one. I have been through hard times but I am strong.


Well, with that out of the way I would like to tell you a story. This story is about the history of today - Valentine's Day. The day of romance we call Valentine’s Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century.
