A quick snap...but attracted to the lines, shapes, dark/light contrast, so decided to keep it. It also reminds me of many Martin Luther King's words and beliefs...in particular:

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction....
~ from Strength to Love (1963)

The words are both simplistic and deeply meaningful. His words always seem to capture that essence.

On a side note, teaching ninth graders about website evaluation is oh.so tough since they really do 'know it all'!! :) But in searching for this quote, it took some digging to get to the actual source - in fact, most of the top hits were from secondary sources that did not link back to book and would then be considered less than reliable. How hard is it to link back to the original and give credit where credit is due!?! Naples, FL
