Love: A bare-bones guide

If we could peer into the very core of love, we might find that it has no race, gender, disability, age or  religion.

In Santa Monica, California on Valentine’s Day, folks were shown what that might look like. 

Hidden behind a huge X-ray screen were a number of loving couples.  As they hugged one another, the viewers could only see their skeletons interacting.

As the couples afterwards stepped out in front of the screen, viewers could then see their physical attributes.  Some were gay, some elderly.  Some were interracial, some interfaith.

This presentation vividly displayed the bare-bones facts about love:  that it transcends all worldly categories and labels.

The Ad Council video of such must have struck an international nerve.  US Magazine reports that it received “more than 1.1 million views in just 24 hours.”

If we could all routinely view love from the inside out, the subconscious prejudices that         dominate many a human interaction might finally be laid to rest.
