love stories on news and media

#LoveStories celebrates the good people who make a difference. Tell a story about someone who has made your life a little lighter. Better yet, share that story with them.

The media are an important part of the fabric of our lives. The media record history in the making, and show us what we would not have seen if not for their determination and dedication. At times, the media have changed the course of history by sharing the truth of injustice with the world and moving us to act.

The media sometimes shows us are worst side. Other times they celebrate the best in us.  What is your favorite media story?

The Kiss

My hometown rioted in 2011 after losing the Stanley Cup. We take our hockey seriously. Too seriously, that day.

In the midst of the destruction and the violence, the police wore battle gear and advanced with shields. One young woman caught up in the middle of it, frightened, tried to leave and fell. She was on her back, police approaching. Her boyfriend stopped, embraced her and kissed her.  

Not the passionate, isn’t this a sexy moment kiss, but a tender, you are going to be okay and I’m here for you kiss. That moment captured by a photographer put another face on a day that will be remember by some as one of our most destructive. We were, as a city, shaken.

The image of the kiss gave us hope, showed us that love and tenderness can be found anywhere, at any time, no matter what circumstances.

Four years later in 2015, they were still together. I wonder where they are now.
