"Independence is my happiness and view things as they are without regard to person or place. The world is my community and my religion is to do good."Tom Paine"Faith is Taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.""I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.""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.""Have we not come to such an impasse in the modern world that we must love our enemies - or else? The chain reaction of evil - hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars - must be broken or else we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.""History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people."- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
