Music Monday ~ Earth Soldier by Pink Floyd

I had originally planned to write a post about Osama Bin Laden but quite frankly, after reading much of what's been written about it on Facebook the past 24 hours, I just don't have it in me to say anymore about the subject.  Instead, I'd like to share this video:

“The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate. So it goes. Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
