“Through violence you may murder a murderer, but you can’t murder murder.
Through violence you may murder a liar, but you can’t establish truth.
Through violence you may murder a hater, but you can’t murder hate.
Darkness cannot put out darkness. Only light can do that.”
(Where do we go from Here? At the 11th convention of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference)
this is so obvious, and yet in our own day to day lives we try to do the opposite and the illogical. we fight back with the same dark tactics.
we forget that love wins.
we forget that more of the same only takes us further in the wrong direction.
we forget only light can do that.
