“To meet hate with retaliatory hate would do nothing but intensify the existence of evil in the universe. Hate begets hate, violence begets violence.” — MLK Jr.

 

We do not destroy enemies by responding to them with hateful rhetoric and acts; doing so only inflames their hatred towards us. We destroy our enemies when we make them our friends. Hating others will not get us where we want to be as a society, and returning hatred will only perpetuate hatred, leaving our children to live in a world with even more hate and violence.
