Love in Action

Today, we honor Dr. King, who echoed the timeless cry of countless spiritual warriors: Love not in passive yearning, but in fierce non-violent resolve. Like Gandhi’s Satyagraha, like the Buddha’s Ahimsa, non-violence is love in action, fighting against injustice with compassion. Let us open our hearts, join hands, and work for peace by putting love at the center.
