Happy MLK Day

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction….The chain reaction of evil–hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars–must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength To Love, 1963.

I intended to write something profound here, but I wound up spending so much time reading Dr. King’s speeches this morning that I was almost late for work. There’s nothing more profound than the man’s own words. So, just go there.
