Returning violence for violence multiplies 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. Martin Luther King, Jr.
"The ultimate consummation of justice is reconciliation, not retribution." ~ Heather Lyn
