Summary of Valentine’s Day…

valentines-day-comment-031Hello everyone,

Yesterday was February 14 called Valentine’s Day which celebrated from couples all around the world. I wanted to post something about this speacial day but I was really tired because of studying for certificate exam. Now I have time to write summary of Valentine’s Day.

Everybody knows that the story of Valentine’s Day but let’s remember once again!

The story of Valentine’s Day begins in the third century with an oppressive Roman emperor and a humble Christian martyr. The emperor was Claudius II Gothicus. The Christian was Valentinus.

Claudius had ordered all Romans to worship state religion’s idols, and he had made it a crime punishable by death to associate with Christians. But Valentinus was dedicated to the ideals of Christ, and not even the threat of death could keep him from practicing his beliefs.

During the last weeks of Valentinus’s life a remarkable thing happened. One day a jailer for the Emperor of Rome knocked at Valentinus’s door clutching his blind daughter in his arms. He had learned of Valentinus’s medical and spiritual healing abilities, and appealed to Valentinus to treat his daughter’s blindness. She had been blind since birth. Valentinus knew that her condition would be difficult to treat but he gave the man his word he would do his best. The little girl was examined, given an ointment for her eyes and a series of re-visits were scheduled.

Then one day, Valentinus received a visit from Roman soldiers who arrested him, destroyed his medicines and admonished him for his religious beliefs. When the little girl’s father learned of his arrest and imprisonment, he wanted to intervene but there was nothing he could do.

On the eve of his death, Valentinus wrote a last note to Julia – knowing his execution was imminent. Valentinus asked the jailer for a paper, pen and ink. He quickly jotted a farewell note and handed it to the jailer to give to his blind daughter. He urged her to stay close to GOD, and he signed it “From Your Valentine.” His sentence was carried out the next day, February 14, 270 A.D., near a gate that was later named Porta Valentini in his memory.

When the jailer went home, he was greeted by his little girl. The little girl opened the note and discovered a yellow crocus inside. The message said, “From your Valentine.” As the little girl looked down upon the crocus that spilled into her palm she saw brilliant colors for the first time in her life! The girl’s eyesight was restored! A miracle!

He was buried at what is now the Church of Praxedes in Rome. It is said that Julia herself planted a pink-blossomed almond tree near his grave. Today, the almond tree remains a symbol of abiding love and friendship. In 496 Pope Gelasius I named February 14 as Saint Valentine’s Day. On each Valentine’s Day, messages of affection, love and devotion are still exchanged around the world.

According to remember this story, we can look at 21th century’s Valentine’s Day.

Capture
This year there was an social organization called 1 Billion Rising. The aim of this project was one billion women is dancing for revoluation on February 14, 2013 which was 15th anniversary of V-Day’s. One in three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her life time and violated is an atrocity. This action happened because of reacting this barbarity.

This is the official video of 1 Billion Rising

So what did I something else? Of course I made cupcakes from my recipe. (^ ⌣ ^)

Goodbye Campus Life..

byebye
“Sometimes goodbye is a second chance…” I really love this song which is right and tells
everything in my mind. I said goodbye to my university campus this week. I don’t like valediction, never ever! There was not enough words to say at that time while I was my best place of the campus, this corner…

I don’t know how many kilometers did I walk around boundaries of campus. Alone or with lots of friends? How many times did I pass near by this pool?

Here is my motivation pool. When I tired of studying, I sit one of bench and thought…

I’ll never forget all of them and remember with a good memories of my campus life… Now I can take a step to beginning of my new life. Moreover, I’ll have a first job interview tomorrow. Wish me luck..

Hope you all had a happy and restful holiday!
