Pride In the Name of Love

"Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it.
Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it.
Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it."
-Martin Luther King.

In 1984, U2 released the song, "Pride (In the Name of Love)" in honor of civil rights leader, Rev. Martin Luther King. It was their first single to chart on the U.S. charts, and I bought myself a copy. The above quote was on the record sleeve. I thought it was quite appropriate.

Happy Martin Luther King day, to my readers of every race, ethnicity, background, and beliefs.
