Issues of the Heart Part 9 

Shannon talked about love being something that is always present, unconditional, and more than just a word in Part 8 of this series and I wanted to find someone to kind of contrast that view. Love is always rainbows and unicorns and I think if we look honestly in the mirror, we have all been…
