Darkness cannot drive out darkness;
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Sweet pie I had a much longer and more eloquent post for you about 9/11 but then my computer crashed and the post disappeared into the ether. And since this day is almost over ... I am going to cut to the chase.
My biggest impression from the events of 9/11 was how people helped each other; neighbors helping neighbors, strangers helping strangers. People in New York and beyond told of how they realized the importance of family and friends, of simpler things.
The ideas that I hold onto from that tragic day 15 years ago, are the importance of loved ones, the strength of community and the power of love.
So today I share two quotes from the amazing Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his thoughts about LOVE!!!
with much much love, mom
I have decided to stick with love.
Hate is too great a burden to bear.
