MLK <3

Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time; the need for mankind to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to oppression and violence. Mankind must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.

I got an email from a friend today, in remembrance of Martin Luther King, Jr.:
Forty years ago today, Martin Luther King Junior was assassinated. I remember growing up and wondering what the world would have been like if he hadn't been. He would have turned 79 years old this year. In remembering him, I want to share with you one of my favorite quotes of his: "Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are seeking forget the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others."
Amen, sister. Here's to happiness :)
