If You've Ever Wondered What Love Actually Looks Like, I'd Suggest You Take A Gander At These Women

When people say "they are sooo in love" this is what they are talking about.

If You've Ever Wondered What Love Actually Looks Like, I'd Suggest You Take A Gander At These Women

When Lenny met Pearl, they had no choice but to fall in love.

They are absolutely, whole heartedly, and flawlessly in love with each other. Sure, it was taboo, and they sure got their community talking! But they figured ... love is louder.


They have been by each other's side for 48 years.

Pearl says that the most important thing for her is to know that Lenny is there. She wants to know she can reach out and touch her and she's going to always be there. (I got a little teary eyed when I typed that part).

Although Lenny and Pearl have been together for almost a half a CENTURY...

HALF. A. CENTURY.

...they just celebrated their first wedding anniversary!

They wanted to wait until they could be married in their own community surrounded by their friends and family.

Watching this video — I mean, anyone who doesn't believe in love after the first minute ... well, they have lizard blood.

And now I'm jealous. Both of their love as a married couple, AND of the love that their community was finally able to share with them.

Sir David Attenborough has one of the most recognized and beloved voices in the world. The British broadcaster and nature historian has spent most of his 94 years on Earth educating humanity about the wonders of the natural world, inspiring multiple generations to care about the planet we all call home.

And now, Attenborough has made a new name for himself. Not only has he joined the cool kids on Instagram, he's broken the record for reaching a million followers in the shortest period. It only took four hours and 44 minutes, which is less time than it took Jennifer Aniston, who held the title before him at 5 hours and 16 minutes.

A day later, Attenborough is sitting at a whopping 3.4 million followers. And he only has two Instagram posts so far, both of them videos. But just watch his first one and you'll see why he's attracted so many fans.

Same-sex marriage is legal in America and these days 63% of all Americans support the idea. Ten years ago, it was still a controversial issue among Democrats, but in 2019, 79% say they support same-sex marriage.

The issue played a big role in the Democratic primary for the Delaware's House of Representatives 27th district race. On September 15, Eric Morrison defeated incumbent Earl Jacques in a landslide and gay rights was a central issue.

In 2013, Jaques voted against same-sex marriage and refused to vote yes or no on banning gay conversion therapy in the state. On the other hand, Morrison is a gay drag queen who performs under the name Anita Mann and is very progressive on LGBTQ issues.

One night in 2018, Sheila and Steve Albers took their two youngest sons out to dinner. Their 17-year-old son, John, was in a crabby mood—not an uncommon occurrence for the teen who struggled with mental health issues—so he stayed home.

A half hour later, Sheila's started getting text messages that John wasn't safe. He had posted messages with suicidal ideations on social media and his friends had called the police to check on him. The Albers immediately raced home.

When they got there, they were met with a surreal scene. Their minivan was in the neighbor's yard across the street. John had been shot in the driver's seat six times by a police officer who had arrived to check on him. The officer had fired two shots as the teen slowly backed the van out of the garage, then 11 more after the van spun around backward. But all the officers told the Albers was that John had "passed" and had been shot. They wouldn't find out until the next day who had shot and killed him.
