Bonnie and Clyde were an unstoppable team. The ragtag bank robber duo were inspiring legends everywhere they went.

Bonnie Elizabeth Parker and Clyde Champion Barrow were lovers who traveled the Central United States with their gang during the Great Depression. They were known for their bank robberies, although they also robbed small stores and rural businesses.

This image of their romantic embrace makes it clear why so many people were attracted to their story. Even if they were hardened criminals, you wanted to root for their passion.

COVID may turn out to be the ultimate stress test for human beings. A literary guide by famed Latin-American writer and Nobel prize-winning author Gabriel García Márquez first published in 1985 El Amor en Los Tiempos del Cólera in Spanish or Love in Times of Cholera is one classic we recommend for all to read. There is also a magnificent film to watch with an absolutely fabulous soundtrack to give a listen to. But manor no mistake about it, the global pandemic must be eradicated.

What makes Love, Liberty, and Labor extremely important to all of us? These three make all the difference in the world for everyone.

As we look forward, and looking back, comparing to life in 1921, the similarities are amazing. A century ago, earth was pounded by a global pandemic; people around the world were starving, and there was a new #USA president being sworn in.

The holidays are a time for comfort and joy for every girl and boy regardless of their age difference because of it's just a number.

Happy couples make it work, despite pretty substantial age gaps. The practice is a pretty common sight nowadays. They say that age is just a number and they would be correct. We know of happy couples where the woman is older and visa versa.
