I have been seeing a battle of words and thoughts on various posts in the last few days and strangely it has stirred many thoughts in my mind. I don’t think I have the skill to articulate them adequately.
God sent was an email that came with many quotes from Martin Luther King Jr., whom I so admire. He has said it all. And it’s amazing how relevant it is to the times we are living in. His wisdom comes from deep compassion and understanding of the human condition. I quote him:
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent aboutthings that matter.” “I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional lovewill have the final word in reality. That is whyright, temporarily defeated, is stronger than eviltriumphant.”“In the end, we will remember not the words of ourenemies, but the silence of our friends.”“Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political andmoral questions of our time; the need for mankind toovercome oppression and violence without resorting tooppression and violence. Mankind must evolve for allhuman conflict a method which rejects revenge,aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such amethod is love.”“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”“I submit to you that if a man hasn't discoveredsomething he will die for, he isn't fit to live.”“Nothing in all the world is more dangerous thansincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he standsin moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
