Love.  Love is the answer to hate.  Any heart truly touched by Love is unable to harbor Hate.

Now, it turns out you don’t have to get all the way to Love to be an effective answer/response to hate.  It is just that as one travels along the path towards a more loving future, the hate somehow gets left behind and disregarded.

That’s it.  You don’t have to marry outside your race, like Richard and Mildred Loving did back in the early 1960’s. Nope.  All you have to do is understand the destination and start the journey.  Life is a journey, so this is really just living part of your life.

Come on!  This is obvious to Yoda when saving the universe.  Feels the hate in young Skywalker, Wise Yoda does. Yet Anakin, half machine, reconnects to that Love by watching the suffering of his son and he throws the hateful Emperor down the shaft.  And speaking of Love, Obi-Wan Kenobi allows himself to be sacrificed, to be struck down, so that he can be there to guide Luke from beyond this life, and has looked after Anakin & Luke out of love for his dying master, Qui-Gon Jinn.  Richard and Mildred don’t own Love.  But we were never going to get creative commons, copyright free pictures of Obi-Wan or Anakin.  And the Lovings – they have a cool last name.

Speaking of Love, big thanks to Reed Probus for posting picture 33469998@N00 on flickr under creative commons license – so people could share the “Love”

You don’t have to get there.  But you begin the journey by acknowledging you can’t hang on to hate.
