a gentle reminder

I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Yes, yet sadly in the name of religion there are many fanatics who have been raised to believe otherwise. One can only hope that one day we will all look upon each other with the eyes of love rather than hate…seeing our connection rather than our separation…and joined in peace rather than war.
