Great words…

“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.
Hate multiplies hate, violence mutliplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction…

Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.
We never get rid of an enemy meeting hate with hate; we get rid of an enemy by getting rid of enmity.
By its very nature, hate destroys and tears down; by its very nature, love creates and builds up.
Love transforms with redemptive power.”

– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
