I saw tons of great heart-inspired photos on Facebook today.

But then these two photos showed up in my news feed*, one right after the other.

The photo on the bottom is certainly an expression of free speech — evidently God, Guns, and Free Speech’s right to free speech, on Facebook. The other is an expression of sorrow and loss of lives gone too soon. I can only get behind one of these causes (Sandy Hook), even though both causes were posted by friends of mine.

It reminded me that while there are things that should bring us together, there are still many more things that tear us apart.

And that, on this Valentine’s Day, just breaks my heart.
