YOUR TURN: Violence is not the answer


This week’s Your Turn segment goes to Brandi Verrett. Verrett and many other people are reacting to the tragic violence of the past week on our Facebook. Verrett’s post includes a few comments from her and four quotes that she posted from Martin Luther King, Jr. In their words:

Violence is not the answer. Innocent lives have been taken. What sense does this make?
'Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.' 
'I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear'
'Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.'
'We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.'

That’s Brandi Verrett’s turn. Now it’s your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to
