Embrace hate... that it may turn into love.

Embrace hopelessness... and will it into the light.

Embrace anger... and fill it with joy.

Embrace intolerance... and share the peace of humanity.

Embrace bigotry... and erase the differences between us.

Embrace poverty... and make everyone richer.

Embrace the dying... that they might live in you heart.

Embrace war... that we might no longer fight.

Embrace... for where there is no love, there can be no change.


In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., spiritual leader of the American drive toward the betterment of society.

  1. This made me think of this

    from another corner of the internet, about Rabbi Heschel, doing just what you talk about here.

    That love is hard to achieve, isn't it. But when it's there, it's the only thing that can move the mountains.
