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!
“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.
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.
