The past few days have been very frustrating. I know that hate exists, but we are seeing it in huge amounts right now, and it's making me sick. I don't think I will ever understand hate.
The words of the Rev Martin Luther King, Jr have always inspired me and brought be a sense of peace. Whatever the subject, Dr King always said it so well. In the past few days there have been a lot of quotes from him floating around. This one in particular moved me:
"Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice. Justice at its best is love correcting everything that stands against love."
