Dear Internet

Martin Luther King Jr. never said "I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. 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.”

So, will you please stop forwarding me emails with the quote in it, posting the quote on your Facebooks and filling up your LJ posts with it?

I applaud whomever invented this quote on the spur of the moment yesterday, but it's really getting annoying to see something that was probably created by someone at 4 Chan get attributed to MLK.

Love,

Bart
