Quote: "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."

Fact: Martin Luther King Jr. often spoke about love and brotherhood, encouraging people to think of others — including "enemies" — like family. He believed love, rather than violence and hatred, is the answer to the world's problems.

What kids can do: When someone treats you poorly, try to treat them well in return. Use your energy to love yourself and help others.
