The Imperfection of Violence

"Through violence you may murder a murderer, but you can't murder murder.
Through violence you may murder a liar, but you can't establish truth.
Through violence you may murder a hater,but you can't murder hate.
Darkness cannot put out darkness. Only light can do that."

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Where Do We Go From Here?"
16 August 1967

Forty years later...and we still don't get it.
