I am at a loss for words…

I cannot ignore the appalling tragedies we experienced over the past week, first through the murder of George Floyd, and then through the riots and destruction left in its wake. 

Yet, I cannot find the words.

So, I'll simply share those of the two greatest civil rights leaders our world has ever know.

Martin Luther King, Jr.: "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
And Nelson Mandela: "No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."

And leave you with a song.
