Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Born January 15, 1929
Assassinated April 4, 1968

"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 murder the hater,
but you do not murder hate.
In fact, violence merely increases hate....
Returning violence for violence multiples 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. "
We, the members of the Hillsborough County
Republican Party, celebrate and honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
and we sincerely pray that one day soon
Dr. King's dream which he expressed so eloquently and sincerely
will become reality...
that love will conquer hate
and that all of God's children
will truly come to know and respect one another.
