On “Spy Wednesday” – so called because it is the day before Judas, the traitor, sold Jesus out for a bag of silver, these words from Martin Luther King, Jr., are most appropriate.
Through violence you may murder a murderer but you can’t murder murder. Through violence you may murder a liar but you can’t establish truth. Through violence you may murder a hater, but you can’t murder hate. Darkness cannot put out darkness. Only light can do that.
– Martin Luther King

Look at everything as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time. Then your time on earth will be filled with glory.
