Happy Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day

My funny valentine, sweet comic valentine
You make me smile in my heart…
from the Rodgers and Hart song made famous by Frank Sinatra

Valentine's Day is very special for young people. It is a time when young lovers tell each other how much they care, a positive time when they can share how they feel with their friends and family too, letting others know about their joys and passions.

Valentine's Day brings its own pressures and problems though. What to buy as a token of your love? Where to dine? What can you afford? These are serious issues for many young people and some find the decisions very hard. For the lonely ones, trying to cope with feeling left out and forlorn, is much worse.

So let us remember on Valentine's Day this year, how lucky we are to be loved. At the Federation we will share what we have. Friends with friends, sons and daughters with mothers and fathers. We all have something to give, be it a rose, a dinner for two or just a few heartfelt words.

Thanks to Partners
