“Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love. It destroys community and makes brotherhood impossible. It leaves society in monologue rather than dialogue. Violence ends by defeating itself. It creates bitterness in the survivors and brutality in the destroyers”         Martin Luther King

We live in a violent world, but we don’t have to make it worse. Don’t reinforce violence in your life. Choose friends that are peaceful and don’t bully others. Avoid violent movies, video games and violent sports events. Turn off the TV, go outside for a walk and look for something new in nature. Enjoy our beautiful earth and the many positive people, pets and wildlife that live here.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

~ Martin Luther King Jr.
