Dr. King began writing his mighty book Strength to Love when jailed for holding a prayer vigil outside Albany City Hall. In his jail cell, Dr. King wrote, "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that." So it was then, so it is now. We are all writing from one kind of jail cell or another, working to free ourselves.
