Martin Luther King Jr. – His Dream of Love

“…love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend. We never get rid of an enemy by meeting hate with hate; we get rid of an enemy by getting rid of enmity.

And they have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom.
