only love

only love

Returning violence for violence
multiplies violence,
adding a deeper darkness
to a night already devoid of stars.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness:
only love can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate:
only love can do that.

~Martin Luther King, (1929 – 1968)

Peace is within you.

Last June, my family and I visited the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site in Atlanta, GA. It was an intensely moving experience for each of us. Today, in honor of the great Dr. Martin Luther King, I’m posting a few photos from our visit.
