This image serves as a poignant reminder of a remarkable chapter in Dr. King’s life—his encounter with adversity when Izola Ware Curry tried to assassinate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., in Harlem in 1958.
Reflecting on love, hate, and the persistence of evil, Dr. King eloquently expressed,
“I am convinced that love is the most durable power in the world. It is not an expression of impractical idealism but of practical realism.”
His words transcend utopian dreams, emphasizing that love is necessary for our civilization’s survival.
To retaliate with hate only fuels the flames of evil, requiring someone with the wisdom and faith to break the cycle through love.
“… how we can bring love and peace …”
It serves as a call to action, urging us to consider how we can bring love and peace to the sometimes tumultuous landscape of Harlem and the world.
To the greatest readers in the world, a heartfelt Happy New Year.
Amid the chaos, let us ponder: How can we sow the seeds of love and peace in Harlem and beyond?
Peace and Love.
