This election season has already been very contentious, so I thought thattoday was a timely reminder of how we should treat each other. From the linked artcle:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Stephon Tull was looking through dusty old boxes in his father”s attic in Chattanooga a few months ago when he stumbled onto something startling: an audio reel labeled, “Dr. King interview, Dec. 21, 1960.”

He wasn”t sure what he had until he borrowed a friend”s reel-to-reel player and listened to the recording of his father interviewing Martin Luther King Jr. for a celebrex uses book project that never came to fruition. In clear audio, Dr. King discusses the importance of the civil-rights movement, his definition lipitor generic of nonviolence and how a recent trip of his to Africa informed his views. Mr. Tull nexium said the recording had been in the attic for years, and he wasn”t sure who other than his father may have heard it.

Further down in the article is a quote from Dr. King defining the practice of nonviolence:

“I generic viagra online would … say that it is a method which seeks to secure a moral end through moral means,” he said. “And it grows out of the whole concept of love, because if one is truly nonviolent that person has a loving spirit, he refuses to inflict injury upon the opponent because he loves the opponent.”
