Don’t Hate

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.  – Martin Luther King, Jr.

I have decided to stick with love.  Hate is too great a burden to bear.  –  Martin Luther King, Jr.

I shall allow no man to belittle my soul by making me hate him.  – Booker T. Washington

Civil Rights Institute – Birmingham, Alabama

The Civil Rights Institute in Birmingham, Alabama, is an amazing museum and educational center.  As you view the exhibits, you can hear the personal stories of  numerous people involved in the civil rights movement.

I was walking through the museum, and I was struck by the courage and solidarity of those fighting for equality.  I was also struck by the ignorance and hatred of those fighting against equality.

If we are wrong, the Supreme Court is wrong.

If we are wrong, the Constitution of the United States is wrong.

If we are wrong, God Almighty is wrong.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
