    Departure of the “Amerigo Vespucci”, Egypt, 1963 ... – Facie Populi ™ I absolutely love this picture. It depicts the dedication and the passion that are found in a couple that truly loves each other. <3 Love can withstand all other forces that try to tear two people apart. Just stay strong, and remember, goodbye isn't forever. -Heather #couples

    Real Photo but Hoax: Often called “The Last kiss”, this photo is sometimes shared as a picture from World War II or, less wrongly, captioned as the 1963 departure of the Amerigo Vespucci from Egypt. The real location is Italy. The 1963 route of this Italian training ship can be found online. Italian speakers can read the story of this trip by photographer Roberto Borra.

    I am truly sorry for your loss, Isabel. Your father was clearly an honorable man, and I am so thankful for his service. It is men like him that keep this country for us, and for that, I am very grateful.

    Dear Isabel, my heart aches for you and your family. God bless you all and will find your devastation easier as time goes by.

    Isabel, your father was such a selfless man. My husband is a Marine, and it broke my heart to see him say goodbye to our older daughter. I can only imagine your pain, God bless you and your family.

The World Wars don't have all that many "Aww..." moments, but I definitely think this is one of them.

At any given moment, you have the power to say: This is not how the story is going to end.
