  • The Bonsai Babes: Thanks for the interview Everything Hapa. Your retweet led me back to the article and I wanted to post a comment. Thanks to those who sounded off. I just saw a great video and wanted to share. It's great validation that love is greater than fear, and that is really what this community is all about right? from Loving Day to Valentine's Day to MLK Day to all the days that celebrate peace, love, and the beauty that is the human spirit... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBC-pRFt9OM

  • Edgar Meza: It's a great book with a lovely story about love between 2 kids...nothing more..I've read it and simply interpreted this as a "love story" between two friends from different backgrounds..Propaganda? Ummm, I think not...I respect the intentions of the author of simply "promoting love"...Being Latino, and growing up in a predominately Asian/Latino community, this story showed that love has no boundaries -and that's a beautiful thing. If a reader interprets it any other way, that's obviously their right, but being derogatory towards this is pretty messed up...
