Heart@Work reminds me that its 40 years since Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech.

Hearing the news this morning of the release of the 9/11 emergency message transcripts, I wondered what possible good could come from this action and was reminded or another of King's speeches:

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 chain reaction of evil--hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars--must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation. ~Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength To Love, 1963

Let the juxtaposition of those two news items speak for itself...
