Teach hate or teach love? Martin Luther King Jr. quotes

Teach hate or teach love?

A Poem by Coyote Poetry

" My Afternoon thoughts. "

When we teach our children love and hate in the same conversation. Did we teach the children well? Hate and love is two different places. You can’t have both. You want your child to see his world with positive eyes and if you demand death, teach hate and they cannot see the good in our world. Maybe you are the problem? My Ojibwa Grandmother taught me. Holding hate and disappointment. A heavy load to carry and the sadness will break your heart. Will blind you from the beauty of life. Be kind to the family, listen and forgive. A heart filled with love, can show the children. Every life is important and we can be brave. Do anything.
