I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.  ~Martin Luther King, Jr

I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear. ~Martin Luther King, Jr

When there is hate in the heart, it is impossible to see through it to truly enjoy the many gifts that are freely given.

  • A sunrise
  • A sunset
  • Another day
  • A child's laugh
  • A lover's touch
  • A second chance
  • Unconditional love

Martin Luther King Jr. was a visionary who spoke of love, overcoming hate and wished for a united nation. Today, we honor you Mr. King and like you, I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear. ~Martin Luther King, Jr

Wanda--well said with good quote.  Unfortunately people like MLK and Gabrielle Gifford paid a high price for their beliefs.  Their efforts will not be in vain if we choose the high road and work to set our own course toward acceptance/love.

Enough of my philosophizing. (sp?)

That guy had an amazing vision. People like Dr. King are people that aren't or were afraid to step up to the plate and do the right thing for everyone.

So true Liz, enjoy your day!

Mary, People have everything to gain and nothing to lose by choosing love over hate.

Thank you Rob! Have a wonderful day yourself!

Tom, I wish more people would. More love + less hate = acceptance!

Kenneth, I do believe that too! The best to you!

In my mind, MLK ranks up there with Ghandi and Mother Theresa as heroes of the twentieth century.  His "I have a dream" still sends chills down my back...

Wanda - I often wonder if Dr. King could be here right now if he would be proud or dissatisfied with the current progress we have made thus far?  Hate is caused by fear.  Hopefully we can all improve the way we treat each other

What a great quote - and I love your list of things to remind us that love is so much better to choose than hate.  I think that hate drains our energy while love can restore it...

Chris, It is a very emotional speech that still gets to me as well!

Nevin, There is always room for improvement, it starts with one person at a time.

Nancy, Agreed!

Thanks Pat, I thought it was appropriate!

Toula, Thank You for your MLK post, I enjoyed your tribute to Mr. King!

I had never heard that quote.  But it is a good one.  It is something the Bible talks about.

Gene, For me love is the better choice so there is no room for the other.

And if you know that someone hates you, and nothing you can do can resolve the problem, it’s just time to move on.
