Happy MLK Day (observed)

Thought I'd keep it simple, and quote parts of his Loving Your Enemies speech:

[Y]ou love your enemies by beginning with a look at self.

For the person who hates, the beautiful becomes ugly and the ugly becomes beautiful.

If I hit you and you hit me and I hit you back and you hit me back and go on, you see, that goes on ad infinitum. It just never ends.

Men must see that force begets force, hate begets hate, toughness begets toughness. And it is all a descending spiral, ultimately ending in destruction for all and everybody.
