dirty deeds... and the dunderchief

 

it bears repeating

The ultimate weakness of violence
is that it is a descending spiral,
begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy.
Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it.
Through violence you may murder the liar,
but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth.
Through violence you murder the hater,
but you do not murder hate.
In fact, violence merely increases hate....
Returning violence for violence multiples violence,
adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

- Dr. King

Wow... I swear, one of these days I'm gonna study up on his life. Or at least read his words more. Maybe I should take a break from reading blogs for a day and just read his stuff. Revolutionary.

I needed to go to the bank and the post office, both were closed, and I was frustrated. Then I got real frustrated with myself for being frustrated about something so insignificant.

That reminds me of the great Martin Luther King Day skit on SNL many years back.
Hilarium!!!
I went in on that.

Good quote Justin. MLK really did set an example of changing culture through Christian love. It's a shame that the current faces of the civil rights movement are Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. As they said in Barbershop, "F*** Jesse Jackson." He does the movement a disservice...and who deemed those guys reverands. But I guess without Jesse, you wouldn't have the most hilarious impression ever on SNL, by Darrell Hammond.

A few recommended readings by Dr. King:

I Have a Dream
Letter from A Birmingham Jail
I See the Promised Land

and various quotes.

The man knew how to write some amazing imagery and create life altering metaphors.
