DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.
This man was the embodiment of peace and forgiveness! In light of some of the recent incidents, here a few words from the great man:
"I REFUSE TO ACCEPT THE VIEW THAT MANKIND IS SO TRAGICALLY BOUND TO THE STARLESS MIDNIGHT OF RACISM AND WAR, THAT THE BRIGHT DAYLIGHT OF PEACE AND BROTHERHOOD CAN NEVER BECOME A REALITY. I BELIEVE THAT UNARMED TRUTH AND UNCONDITIONAL LOVE WILL HAVE THE FINAL WORD".
"VIOLENCE, AS A WAY OF ACHIEVING RACIAL JUSTICE, IS BOTH IMPRACTICAL AND IMMORAL. I AM NOT UNMINDFUL OF THE FACT THAT VIOLENCE OFTEN BRINGS ABOUT MOMENTARY RESULTS. NATIONS HAVE FREQUENTLY WON THEIR INDEPENDENCE IN BATTLE. BUT IN SPITE OF TEMPORARY VICTORIES, VIOLENCE NEVER BRINGS PERMANENT PEACE".
Great words from a great man, who lived what he preached!
