[Love] learn or burn...
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
― Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches
No child is born with prejudice and hate in his or her heart. All are born wanting to connect with others. Just as love is learned when children are cherished and nurtured, hate is also learned by messages and cues that are both verbal and nonverbal. As hate is learned, so it can be unlearned.
“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.”
― Elie Wiesel
