Truth: What I Know, Believe and Hope

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Little children, let us not love in word or talk, but in deed and truth.” ~ 1st John 3:18
