A Quote for Thought

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. (Stolen [with both quotes conjoined] from Steve Quiry’s status update. Thanks!) My last post in a nutshell.

*This was not said by MLK, but added on by another. Ahh, the perils of social media. The worst part is I actually googled the quote before posting it to fact check it and when I scanned quickly and saw the whole thing mentioned as MLK, I trusted the initial search… Oh well. A good lesson for all that posted the inaccurate quote. Although, it still does not change the fact that I agree with the sentiments of both united.
