10.25.2020 – refuse to accept

refuse to accept
despair as the final response
to the everyday

Adapted from Dr. Martin Luther King’s Nobel Peace Prize speech on December 10, 1964.

Dr. King said, “Refuse to accept despair as the final response to the ambiguities of history.”

Dr. King was thinking of the efforts for civil and human rights here in the United States and scross the world.

But boil it down to just one person and just one day.

Just today.

Despair.

Covid fatigue alone how can someone hold off despair.

Refuse to accept it.

That is possible for sure.

Just today.

But how to do it over and over and over again?

Dr. King said, ” I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. “

Unarmed truth.

Unconditional love.

Despair.

The final word.

Love.
