In victory speech, Megan Rapinoe calls on Americans to 'love more, hate less'

Source: The Hill

Soccer star Megan Rapinoe urged Americans to "love more" and "hate less" in a speech Wednesday during a ticker tape parade celebrating the U.S. women's national team in New York City.

"This is my charge to everyone, we have to be better. We have to love more, hate less. We got to listen more and talk less," Rapinoe told the crowd.

"We got to know that this is everybody’s responsibility, every single person, here every single person who is not here, every single person who doesn't want to be here, every single person who agrees and doesn't agree. It's our responsibility to make this world a better place," she continued.

Rapinoe and her teammates took home their fourth Women's World Cup on Sunday, breaking their own record and defending their championship status. But the team has drawn international recognition not only for its championship record, but also for its calls for equal pay.

1. Great Pub Sign

Over in the UK for vacation. Walked past a pub that had a sandwich chalk board outside that said:

"Alcohol is the enemy...
But Christ said to love your enemy so...."

2. Rapinoe should be talking about biggest crisis

In America ... Obesity! It is becoming rare to see people over 40 who are not over-weight, out of shape or down right obese.

It is the top reason why healthcare costs are out of sight.

3. It was a superb speech, delivered with both passion...

...and compassion.

I will watch clips of it again, several times.

5. In that theme, I'd expect her to announce, "I would absolutely LOVE ...

... to visit the fucking White House".
