It is natural for human beings to desire love; as the saying goes, ‘love makes the world goes round’. Though it may not be true in the physical or scientific aspect, it may carry some truth for humans who live their lives daily in relationships.
Humans are created to have interaction with one another. There is always some connection between human beings. Special relationships are found between humans of opposite gender as in a love relationship like marriage. There is also the family bond which is part of a loving relationship. No one is an orphan as everyone is connected or linked with another through love. Humans are not meant to live their lives alone; there is an innate need in humans to interact with one another and to express their emotional needs to be fulfilled such as care, joy, sorrow, pain, sacrifice and so on.
Men and women can do many things to inspire or build up love between them, and to avoid the many prevailing problems that tear down their relationship today like financial difficulties, addiction, infidelity, arrogance and abuses. Often times, the solution is very simple and plentiful. You only need to make time for love to grow in you and in your spouse or loved ones.
Every person in a relationship has taken on the responsibility to work on the relationship which will keep the involved parties together or apart. Each party has a role to play by caring for the other person instead of adopting a selfish and arrogant attitude. Wives can do simple tasks like preparing a good meal for their husbands where husbands can surprise their wives with something they like, no matter how small or simple the gift may be. Women are more emotional creatures and welcome any kind gesture from their spouse. Even some new and sexy lingerie can encourage a little more romance in the relationship and put it on a more solid platform.
Today, marriage vows are hard to keep but not impossible if both parties stay focused on their vows, taking them to heart and commitment. It is both parties’ responsibilities to deliver the vows to the other party. Love is about up building the other spouse and not the self.
There are many ways to keep your love aflame for your loved ones.
Honesty in Love
Honesty is the best policy as the adage goes. Both parties need to accept each other as they are without trying to change the other. It is hard to keep up a pretention or a charade. When you are honest in love, you will feel free to be yourself and you will find true love because you will attract those who enjoy what they see or know of you.
All humans know and must learn to accept that no one is perfect; not even the self. So, how can one demand or insist perfection from another? Only God is perfect. We can only work to be the best as happily as we can so that we can enjoy our lives with our loved ones.
Horse racing is a global, multi-million dollar industry. There's flash, there's glamour, there's lots of money being thrown around. Modern Thoroughbred racing has been nicknamed "The Sport of Kings."
But what about the horses? Putting aside for the moment the negative effects horse racing has on growth and development, the race itself can be a dangerous undertaking for both jockey and horse. During a race, a stumble that would otherwise not be cause for alarm can quickly become a deadly situation. Horses running at full tilt in close quarters with blinders on are unable to react to the misstep of another horse and get out of the way. A jockey, thrown from his horse in such a situation, faces being trampled and seriously injured or even killed.
Also, remember that horses are prey animals, and as such they run first and think about it later. If a horse spooks and tries to break away and leave the track, the jockey may have no control over what direction the animal chooses to run, even if it's back toward a pack of oncoming horses. Just getting a horse to enter the starting gate and overcome its fear of being unable to flee while trapped in tight quarters can be a challenge. Some horses have to be blindfolded and led to the gate in chains!
However, the negative impacts of racing begin long before a horse ever enters the starting gate at the track. Take Barbaro, the beautiful Thoroughbred who made headlines in 2005. He won the Kentucky Derby that year, then two weeks later shattered his leg during the Preakness. It took two years, many painful surgeries, long bouts of laminitis, and lots of suffering for both owner and horse before it was finally acknowledged that Barbaro was not going to get better. He was euthanized on January 29, 2007. The worst part of it is, Barbaro did not have to die. Even though Barbaro's injury occurred during a race, and it was labeled a "freak accident," there are those who theorize that the conditions that led up to his susceptibility to that injury started long before that day.
So what's the problem? On February 8, 2007, an ABC news report, "Danger Out of the Gate," reported that for every 1000 horses that started a race, 1.5 of them collapsed and died at the gate or on the track.
In large part, it's just plain overwork. Horses are allowed to start racing at a very young age, sometimes even before they have turned a full year old. Their bones, tendons, and ligaments are still developing at this age, and are easily damaged from too much work. Damage to young bones and joints can lead to early problems with arthritis. Damage to developing tendons and ligaments can lead to lifelong problems with shin splints and other forms of tendonitis.
The ABC report mentioned above also pointed out that the use of drugs (both legal and illegal) can also lead to injury and death on the track. In particular, there's a drug (it's actually legal, if you can believe that) called Salix that's given to a horse on race day to improve performance. Salix is used to "control 'bleeding,' an exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage, in which a horse's capillaries burst in the lungs." Obviously, "blood in the lungs will mean that oxygenation does not proceed as before," and thus, performance will be diminished.
The bottom line is that horses were not meant to be ridden, much less worked hard and raced, before age 3 or 4. Next time you're watching that "exciting" horse race, think about what it's doing to the animals providing you with entertainment.
