words / 76

Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world,
I think about the arrival gate at Heathrow Airport.
General opinion’s starting to make out that 
we live in a world of hatred and greed,
but I don’t see that.
It seems to me that love is everywhere.
Often, it’s not particularly dignified and newsworthy,
but it’s always there –
fathers and sons, mothers and daughters,
 husbands and wives,
boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends.
When the plane hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know,
none of the phone calls from the people on board
were messages of hate or revenge –
they were all messages of love.
If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaking suspicion..
love actually is all around.”
–Love Actually
