Picasso dove


History is cluttered with the wreckage of nations and individuals that pursed this self-defeating path of hate. We still have a choice today: nonviolent coexistence or violent co-annihilation. We must move past indecision to action. If we do not act, we shall surely be dragged down the long, dark, and shameful corridors of time reserved for those who posses power without compassion, might without morality, and strength without sight.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Riverside Church - April 4, 1967
