Thoughts on Charleston Massacre

Have you noticed???
From the first reports about the horrific tragedy in Charleston, the reaction of the black community resonates with the teaching of Dr. King during the Civil Rights Movement - love is stronger than hate. 
Ask any of the foot soldiers from the Movement why they didn't react with anger and hate to the brutality and hate they endured & they look puzzled by your question & respond, "That's not what Dr. King taught. That's not what fueled the Movement."
I am humbled by those same reactions today - and I believe that love truly is stronger than hate. Let's use these days forward to remove hate from our country in all areas of race, religion, gender, LGBT individuals,...whatever.
