MLK Jr Tribute: Hatred Darkens Life, Love Illuminates It

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.”
-Martin Luther King Jr.

A legacy of inspiration and social change will forever be intertwined with the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His words and courage send a powerful message to the hopeless and downtrodden, to the oppressed and weary.

Wherever you are today, remember that your tomorrow could look vastly different than any you could have imagined if you hold fast to your dream.

Here’s my small tribute to his great legacy…


“Hatred darkens life, love illuminates it.”
-Martin Luther King Jr.
