A testament of Hope
Always be sure that you struggle with moral methods and moral weapons.
Never succumb to the temptation of becoming bitter. As you press on for justice, be sure to moue with dignity and discipline, using only the weapon of love. Let no man pull you so low as to hate him. Always avoid violence. It you succumb to the temptation of using violence in your struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and desolate night of bitterness, end your chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos
In your struggle for justice; let your oppressor know that you are not attempting to to defeat or humiliate him, or even to pay him back for injustices that he has heaped on you. Let him know that you ore merely seeking for justice for him as well as yourself. Let him know that the sore of segregation effects the white Man as well as the Negro. With this attitude, you will be able to keep your struggle on high standards.
Many people will realise the urgency of seeking to eradicate the evil of segregation. There will be many Negroes who will devote their lives to the cause of freedom. There will be many white people of good will and strong moral sensitivity who will dare to take a stand for justice. Honesty impels me to admit that such n stood will require willingness to stiller and sacrifice. So don’t despair it you ore condemned und persecuted tor righteousness’ sake. When you take a stand for truth and justice, you are liable to scorn. Often you will he called an impractical idealist or a dangerous radical. Sometimes it might menu going to prison. It such is the case, you must honorably grace the prison with your presence. It might eyen mean physical death. But if physical death is the price that some must pay to free their children from a permanent life of psychological death, then nothing could be more rewarding.
I still believe that standing up for the truth is the greatest thing in the world. This is the end of life. The end of life is not to be happy. The end of life is not to achieve pleasure and ovoid pain. The end of life is to do good, come what may.
(The Essential Writings of Writings of Martin Luther King Jr. Edited by James M. Washington.)
