more than words


Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. 
Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. 

*

Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend. 

*

Nonviolence is a powerful and just weapon.
 It cuts without wounding and ennobles the man who wields it. 
It is a sword that heals. 

*

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools. 


- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This was the message at my church yesterday. In fact, the pastor read the exact same quote with one addition. It was certainly appropriate for this day of remembrance. I wish that more people in the world would listen to these words and make peace in the world a reality.

I just heard an excerpt on the radio driving home from errands, and thought of this blog actually , with the quote.

Which is a good thing as I had so much catching up to do.

He spoke about the end not justifying the means, and I just could have listened to him for hours.
