In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.
People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.'
It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.
We are not here to curse the darkness, but to light the candle that can guide us thru that darkness to a safe and sane future.
