This movie and this letter tell me what Saint Valentine's Day AND pure L O V E is ALL about.  Watch the movie, it is on Netflix.  Read this letter.  This man is amazing.  No other way to say it, he is an inspiration to anyone who breaths.  

Greenwich Times

A few months ago my wife Bertha left this great veil of tears, and I was really grief stricken.  I was surprised how suicidal one can become when you lose a loved one. When I was mourning my wife's departure, I did a lot of thinking and I asked myself many questions. What is it all about?  What is the meaning of our lives?  What is the real purpose of our struggle and spiritual hunger, our victories and achievements, our sacrifices and our sufferings? What are we living for? I believe you will discover, as I did, that love is what it is all about. The love of G-d and man, and when you have found out what it is all about, you will know that the object of life is not to be smart, but wise.  Not to be rich, but generous.  Not to be a racist or a bigot, but tolerant.  Not to be powerful, but loving. Not to serve yourself, but to serve humanity, with courage and charity.
