Greetings to all!
With the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Holiday upcoming, consider
these thoughts from Dr. King regarding nonviolence as a strategy
for social change.
I've decided that I'm going to do battle for my philosophy. You
ought to believe something in life, believe that thing so fervently
that you will stand up with it till the end of your days. I can't make
myself believe that God wants me to hate. I'm tired of violence.
And I'm not going to let my oppressor dictate to me what method
I must use. We have a power, power that can't be found in Molotov
cocktails, but we do have a power. Power that cannot be found in
bullets and guns, but we have a power. It is a power as old as the
insights of Jesus of Nazareth and as modern as the techniques of
(from The Words of Martin Luther King, Jr.)
