"Hatred and bitterness can never cure the disease of fear, only Love can do that.
Hatred paralyzes life, Love releases it.
Hatred confuses life, Love harmonizes it.
Hatred darkens lif, Love illuminates it."

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.
