And even better...


"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."
UPDATE (probably not said by Martin Luther King Jr.)

That's so interesting... I've seen this quote for so many years and loved it. This happens all the time, doesn't it??

Oh well, the sentiment is still very worthy.
