I first find it hard to believe that there is a lot of sacrifice for good going on. I do see a lot of claims of sacrifice, but the results show otherwise in our world today. I guess I would have to say their is a lot of "lip-service" when this word is tossed around. People will do many token acts of kindness that demonstrate love but, for good? How many people do you know will sacrifice their job (money) to do the right thing for people they don't even know? I guess it would be easier to say, How many people turn a blind eye to "bad" in order to keep their job? ... there is often something that at some point or another that is chosen over love. I see love as be conditional in many people. I think the real love is more than conditional love, that is like a candle that needs "oxygen" to survive.

Why involve some iffy fiffy chemical reaction that occurs in the brain. A reaction that people like to call love?
