What Is Love For You?
February is a time when "Love is in the air," and all around us. You can't miss the popular heart shaped candy boxes and stuffed animals that fill the aisles in the stores. Yet, what does love even mean? And is it limited to only a certain kind of relationship? According to the Cambridge Dictionary, the definition of love is, “to have a strong affection for someone.” We took this definition to the school and its students to get their ideas on what love means to them:
“A feeling that you express to the people you are closer with” -Jessica (9th grade).
“I feel that love is the most wonderful thing in the world” -Javier (sophomore).
“Love is an emotion that we only feel towards those we really care about, we feel love when we are with our family or partners. Is an emotion that does not compare to any other because, personally, I think it is one of the most beautiful feeling ever” -Keyla (sophomore).
“Unconditional loyalty and respect” -Yojan (sophomore).
“Taking care of the people around you at all times and not hurting them” -Ana (junior).
“For me, love is a decision which I base on 1 Corinthians 13:4-8” -Luis (junior).
“God, and taking care of others” -Brenda (senior).
“It is when someone is always there with you in the good and bad moments that you are passing through; even when you have made mistakes with that person” -Kevin (junior).
