On this day, the eighth anniversary of the day the world changed, it doesn't feel right to be frivolous or silly. Instead today's Life Candy segment is a quote from one of my favorite movies, Love Actually. It is in the voice of UK's Prime Minister, as played by Hugh Grant:
"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion has it that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see it like that.
Seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there. Fathers and sons. Mothers and daughters. Husbands and wives. Boyfriends, girlfriends. Old friends.
When the planes 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 have a sneaky feeling that you will find that love actually is all around."
