Coretta Scott King: “I must remind you that starving a child is violence. Suppressing a culture is violence. Neglecting schoolchildren is violence. Punishing a mother and her family is violence. Discrimination against a working man is violence. Ghetto housing is violence. Ignoring medical need is violence. Contempt for poverty is violence.”
Charles Eisenstein: “Love is the expansion of the self to include the other. And that’s a different kind of revolution.”
both quoted in this amazing post by Eireann Lorsung.
To which I’ll add: “Love is the answer and you know that for sure.” –from another poet for peace, John Lennon.
