Words: “Darkness Cannot Drive Out Darkness …”

Martin Luther King Jr. - Creator of change
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness;
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate;
only love can do that.
Martin Luther King Jr. - Creator of change
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.
