Love can turn an enemy into a friend

This is one of the most powerful and moving quotes, and images. Love is the most powerful force in the world because it can turn any enemy into a friend. The reason is because it allows everyone to realize the underlying principle of all humanity, that we are all in this together. Regardless of your opinions or views, at the end of the day, we all deep down want the best for ourselves and the world around us. It is this principle that allows us to understand it is naive to view anyone as being at the very core, an enemy to us. Deep down, we have no real enemies because regardless of how aggressive our perceived enemies are, they do in fact feel that they are doing what is best for the world. So rather than making enemies we should realize this deep down fact and rather learn to change their viewpoints through communication, understanding, and above all through love.

This photo is of the statue representing the Christmas Truce during the first World War. It is located in Liverpool, UK. Thus the very fact that there was a truce during a war, further shows that our enemies are no different than us, and we all share a common humanity, regardless of our differences.

The quote was said by the famous social activist Martin Luther King Jr., and was a driving force behind his push to ensure equal rights for all people, especially African Americans. So remember that almost always, it is better to try to make an enemy into a friend, rather than to simply fight.
