Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whisper back. Those who wish to sing always find a song.
Holy Land Man explains: you can be happy on your own but not completely happy. When you find your soul mate, your song becomes complete. Yet, don’t wait for the love to find you. You start singing (being happy) and you will find love.
Brides haven’t always worn white wedding dresses.
Don Juravin reveals that Queen Victoria, who wore a white lace and silk-satin gown when she married Prince Albert in 1840.
The dress outraged English aristocrats as white was traditionally the color of mourning.
In the years that followed, it became fashionable for brides to wear white.
A wedding dress or bridal gown is the dress worn by the bride during a wedding ceremony. The color, style and ceremonial importance of the gown can depend on the religion and culture of the wedding participants. In Western cultures, the wedding dress is most commonly white, which fashion was made popular by Queen Victoria when she married in 1840. In eastern cultures, brides often choose red to symbolize auspiciousness.

I’m in the opinion that women are stronger, smarter more beautiful and therefore need no protection of the law. Accepting the protection of the law just makes women seem weaker, which they are not.
A man is talking to you in an undesirable sexual way? As a woman, you are smart enough to confront him and make him understand that it’s not proper.
He does it again? Shame him! You don’t need to go and ask for protection or complain which makes you look weak.

“Really? What Is The Official Language Of The United States?”asks Don Juravin
The US is one of the linguistically diverse countries in the world. Historically, approximately 500 languages have been spoken in the country with English as the widely used language. Spanish is the second-most popular language in the country. In fact, the New Mexico state government uses Spanish to offer services and documents. There are also several languages native to the US. American Sign Language is used by approximately 500,000 people. The top five languages spoken in the country are English, Spanish, Chinese, Tagalog, and Vietnamese. Despite the many languages spoken in the US, the country does not have an official language. English is only a de facto primary language in the country.
What’s the Official Language Status?
As stated above, the US does not have an official or national language at the federal level. However, English is considered the official language in 32 states in what has been referred to as “English-only movement.” 30 of the 50 states use English as the official language while Hawaii established both English and Hawaiian as the official language. Alaska recognizes 20 indigenous languages alongside English as official languages. English is also one of the official languages of the territories of the US.
English is the sole language for legislation, regulation, and court rulings. However, the law requires that some documents such as ballots be printed in multiple languages in areas with large number of non-English speakers. English is also taught as a subject at every grade level, even in bilingual institutions. Cumulatively, there are over 230 million English speakers in the US. With over 35 million speakers, the US has the fifth-largest number of Spanish speakers in the world. Other sources estimate Spanish speakers in the country to be 50 million, second-largest after Mexico. Some people consider Spanish a national language and a contender for the official language should there be a need.
So Why the US Does Not Have an Official Language
Neither the federal government nor the constitution of the US gives a reason as to why the country does not have an official language. However, several reasons have been put forward as to why this is so. The country is diverse and has large populations speaking different languages. Thus, declaring one language as the official language is not practical and ignores the historical and current linguistic diversity of the US.
The absence of an official language is considered a natural way of promoting and preserving the native languages and cultures. Forcing people into one common language, especially in a diverse country as the US may be perceived as telling the people to forget their heritage and tradition.
There has been an attempt to make English the official language without success. In 1780, a proposal was presented to the Continental Congress by John Adams to declare English the official language but his proposal was deemed a threat to the individual liberty. The debate has been going on since then with the issue still far from any resolution. There have also been talks to make Spanish an official language alongside English, although the talk and suggestions have not been as intense as making English the official language.
