The Power of Love Can Save Us

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

MLK on nonviolence and refusing to hate

If we take the refusal to hate one step further, is it possible to find something to love, or at least like, about every person?  I believe it is possible. And the honest effort is a worthy one moving us in the direction of peace and understanding. It can begin with communication, which means listening with the goal to understand, and speaking with respect, from our hearts. It is not always easy. But it is possible.

  3. Bonsoir JOANA MARTIN LUTHER KING était un grand homme de paix

    Tiens,tiens
    Mais que fais-je par ici
    Me serais-je perdu
    Mais non ça y est je me rappelle
    Je venais te dire bonsoir
    Te souhaiter une belle soirée
    Après une petite halte chez toi
    Je vais continuer mon trajet
    Je te fais une bise d’amitié

  4. Some wonderful words. What if…….? I believe that most people agree with these sentiments. But all it takes is for one or two hate filled politicians to poison a small minority and for the media to give them air time and the majority have to suffer.

    • That’s why I don’t watch the drama promoting mainstream media much anymore. I try to be selective, but it’s hard to avoid the blatant negativity. I keep thinking people are going to get tired of this and support a more balanced network or publication. There is certainly a niche for something more positive.

  5. Reblogged this on Anything is Possible! and commented:

    Revisiting this post from last year in honor of Martin Luther King. Today I marched in the MLK parade with the Grandmother’s for Peace. There were only five of us, but it felt great!

  6. Thank you for these words on our day to honor Dr. King.
