Freedom to Love

I was in Chicago on business for the last few days. I really like Chicago in spite of there being so many whiny Cubs fans. Anyway, our office is on Madison by the river. I went downstairs yesterday to get some air about 10:00 am as I was tired of sitting on my butt in meetings. It was a beautiful day and there were a lot of people milling around. I saw a young Latin couple walking slowly down Madison hand in hand. They stopped at the bridge and enjoyed a lingering kiss. They spoke briefly, kissed again, then went their separate ways, he to his job and she to hers, I assumed, as they were both in business attire.

I thought that we often think about our freedom of speech, religion etc. in this country but not the freedom just to give someone a kiss on the street in front of the world. In some Muslim countries, this could get you killed. It would certainly get you ostracized. So the next time you see a display of public affection, be glad that you live in a country where the right to love is a freedom, too.

Crazy Legs

I don't know what's funnier - the video or the guys watching it.
