John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Vandals covered a statue in Florida depicting the iconic photograph commemorating the end of World War II in red paint Tuesday, spraying #MeToo across the memorial.

Sarasota’s statue of the “The Kiss” remembers one of the most famous photographs of the 20th century. The picture photographed by Alfred Eisenstaedt shows war veteran George Mendonsa kissing Greta Zimmer Friedman in Times Square on Aug. 14, 1945, the day Japan surrendered to the U.S.

Police have not discovered who is responsible for the vandalism.

“The approximate damage is estimated to be more than $1,000 due to the large area that the graffiti covers, and the resources needed to repair it,” according to the Sarasota Police Department, CBS News reported Tuesday.

Mendonsa died Sunday, only two days before his 96th birthday, according to CNN.

Friedman and Mendonsa did not know each other before they kissed. “The excitement of the war bein’ over, plus I had a few drinks,” Mendonsa said, CBS reported in a separate article. “So when I saw the nurse I grabbed her, and I kissed her.”

“It was the moment that you come back from the Pacific, and finally the war ends,” Mendonsa told CBS in 2012.

Friedman echoed his sentiments. “It wasn’t that much of a kiss. It was more of a jubilant act that he didn’t have to go back,” Friedman said, CNN reported.

“It was just an event of ‘thank God, the war is over’ kind of thing,” Friedman also said in a 2005 interview.
