One thought on “HAIKU: RACIST WORDS

  1. Throughout this extended season of vitriolic rhetoric and as we celebrate his birthday this weekend, I am reminded of Martin Luther King and his teaching drawn from the lessons and applications of Gandhi and the most fundamental teachings of Jesus: we can only defeat hatred with love.

    Perhaps the hardest thing we have to do as people of any faith or anti-faith. To love those who hurt us or want to hurt us, trusting that love to possess transformative powers. This is the true measure of faith, for it will not always succeed, we will fail more than succeed.

    Yet we persist.
