the corners of the world - dogs and people are doing radical
things like standing, sitting, walking, and if need be, occasionally
hold these truths to be self-evident, that all [people
and dogs] are created equal, that they are endowed by
their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that
among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of
Happiness... That whenever any Form of Government
becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right
of the People [and Dogs] to alter or to abolish it,
and to institute new Government...
the Declaration of Independence
7, 1965, "Bloody Sunday" - forever changed Selma,
ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending
spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy.
Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it.
Through violence you may murder the liar, but you
cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through
violence you may murder the hater, but you do not
murder hate, In fact violence merely increases hate.
So it goes. 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."
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
