Not Even An Enemy

*UPDATE: Turns out only part of the quote was originally from MLK. The sentiment remains, though. Full story on how this spread like fire yesterday from The Atlantic.*
With front pages like this one today, it’s worth remembering Martin Luther King’s words below.
“I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, 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.”
