It is finally here, the day that we ask that age-old Valentine’s question, Will you be my Valentine?
On this day in 270AD, St. Valentine’s was martyred. At least that is what history records. His crime? Marrying young couples in secret when the emperor had forbidden it. This was in the interest of building a formidable army that fought without distractions.
However, there are two other Valentines who were martyrs for their part in spreading love in an otherwise war-torn Roman empire. It seems even then, the name heralded the universal unspoken language that is love.
Happy Valentine’s Day
Today your characters get to follow in the footsteps of these brave martyrs to enable love to flourish on this Valentine’s day.
