Martin Luther King Jr.

In light of the recent news surrounding the killing of Osama Bin Laden...reading the words of Martin Luther King Jr. was powerful in recognizing and refocusing my heart.

"I will 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.
