Supposed Martin Luther King Quote...

By now I'm sure most people reading this have seen a quote purportedly to be from Martin Luther King in relation to Osama Bin Ladens killing. The quote reads...

"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that."


It's been quoted on the radio here in Ireland, been posted on a million facebook pages and tweeted a few million times and was published in the letters page of the Irish Independent yesterday.
For the bant I wrote into the Indo and for the double bant they decided to publish it. It was fun to see it there this morning.
