Have a heart

Youngsters give their thoughts about love

In its profusion of red, pink and purple, Valentine’s Day is here again, and some of us sigh and roll our eyes. Oh, love.
But for many others, Valentine’s Day is highly anticipated.
Children in particular love Valentine’s Day. They can spend what seems to their parents like hours choosing just the right little cards and writing out the names of classmates and friends. With excitement and determination they decorate boxes or bags to hold the valentines and treats they hope will come their way during a school party.
With that in mind we asked some students at Holy Family Catholic School a few questions about love.
Their responses are a reminder that true love isn’t found in roses or chocolates or other typical gifts, although those can be thoughtful.
Love touches us most deeply when given in a warm hug or a kind word or deed.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
