“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.

risking my heart (because I believe that’s what it’s for.)

At least dogs couldn’t call you on the phone.  The guilt trip had to be laid as one left, and by the time one returned, the silly buggers were so overjoyed, all sins were forgiven.  Dogs were eternally optimistic.  They seemed to believe each abandonment was the last and each homecoming eternal.  They were Catholic not only in their ability to inspire guilt but in their unwavering faith.
