I love you!

When I first came to America in 1996, I was lucky to find an apartment in New York City. Before coming, I had never thought of ever moving to the US. I didn't even speak English. But once here, one of the things I had to do, was to go to a Mass in Harlem.
It was within my first three months living here, that I gathered the courage to go to the famous Abyssinian Baptist Church, on 136th Street. All my friends at the time told me not to go to Harlem on my own, but being me, I went.
The Mass was spectacular, though my English was very basic, I grasped everything I could of the sermons given by different people (Sorry I'm not a Church goer, so I don't know the titles).
At one point, something happened, and even though I was new to this, I got it. Everyone stood up, and placed their left hand on the person next to them. then together, we had to say: "I love you, and there's nothing you can do about it."
This was my revelation, my light, my joy.
I have since, applied my "Love your life, and Life is beautiful" motto, throughout my life. In my dance classes, I always remind people to love themselves, and to see the light.
Here is a little something I would like to share with my friends.
Watch the video, and download the app, if you have a smartphone.
The app is basically a messaging app, that will begin all your messages with "I LOVE YOU."
I LOVE YOU - Call me!

Not sure who came up with this, or why, but what I'm sure about, is that at the end of the day we all want to be loved.
So what the video, ( ) share it with your friends, and remind people how much you love them.
My dear readers, I love you and there's nothing you can do about it.
