“Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, 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. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction.” – the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today, the House Republican Caucus honors the life and legacy of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who dedicated himself to advocating for equal rights and justice for all Americans through non-violent means. We must continue to work together to fulfill his dream so that all people can “live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
