Why am I throwing rocks? How many ways to expressing love?

Martin Luther King, Jr.,  said in 1956:
1) If peace means accepting second-class citizenship, I don’t want it.
2) If peace means keeping my mouth shut in the midst of injustice and evil, I don’t want it.
3) If peace means being complacently adjusted to a deadening status quo, I don’t want peace.
4) If peace means a willingness to be exploited economically, dominated politically, humiliated and segregated, I don’t want peace.
So in a passive, non-violent manner, we must revolt against this peace.”

“We do not throw these rocks with hate.
We throw these rocks with love,
Love for a murdered brother,
Love for a sick grandmother without medicine,
Love for a family we cannot visit,

Love for a world we will never travel to,
Love for a freedom we will never experience,
Love for an ancient people.
We throw these rocks with love for Palestine.”
Calligrapher: Everitte Barbee

Love for a murdered brother,<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
Love for a sick grandmother without medicine,<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
Love for a family we cannot visit,<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
Love for a world we will never travel,</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<p>Love for a freedom we will never experience,<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
