Light Up the Darkness

That scene in I Am Legend when Will Smith talks about Bob Marley.

“[Bob Marley] had this idea. Kind of a virologist idea. He believed that you can cure racism and hate; literally cure it, by injecting music and love into people’s lives. When he was scheduled to perform at a peace rally, a gunman came to his house and shot him down. Two days later he walked on stage and sang. Somebody asked him, “Why?” He said, “The people who are trying to make the world worse are not taking a day off. How can I?”

Quoting Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

LIGHT UP THE DARKNESS.
