A Strong Demanding Love

And so I say to you today that I still stand by nonviolence.
And I am still convinced that it is the most potent weapon available...

For through violence you may murder a murderer
but you can't murder murder.

Through violence you may murder a liar but you can't establish truth

Through violence you may murder a hater
but you can't murder hate.

Darkness cannot put out darkness.
Only light can do that.

And I say to you, I have also decided to stick to love.
For I know that love is ultimately the only answer to mankind's problems.
And I'm going to talk about it everywhere I go.
I know it isn't popular to talk about it in some circles today.
I'm not talking about emotional bosh when I talk about love,
I'm talking about a strong demanding love...

...I say to myself that hate is too great a burden to bear.

I have decided to love.

~Martin Luther King, Jr.
