Love Reinstated

After reading an article in an online newspaper about a celebrity who was going through a hard time, I decided to leave a message wishing her and her family all the very best for the future.

In the comments section readers can rate whether they like or dislike readers' comments.

I noticed majority of the comments that readers were liking were the ones that were "attacking" the celebrity. My comment and similar comments were attracting lots of dislikes.

Later, I noticed my comment was no longer there. I soon received an email that my comment had been removed because readers had complained against what I'd written.

I was stunned that readers would find a comment offering my best wishes so offensive that they would report it. In thought, I sent out my love to the celebrity, all the readers (including the "haters") and the newspaper. I also put out an intention that my comment be reinstated.

I received an email later from the moderator notifying me that my comment has been reinstated.

I would rather be on the side of those who love than those who hate.

Besides, only Love has any real power.
