Happy MLK Day from the Eden’s Island Blog

Eden Ahbez, like Martin Luther King, Jr., railed against hatred and violence, imploring peace, and never losing hope for a more loving world.

These were his words about racial injustice.

Ahbez’s great friend Joe Romersa first posted this quote by the elder nature boy at his website here:

On this MLK Day 2015, may each of us remember that violence only begets violence, but that simple acts of non-violence are the only path to lasting peace and change. Martin himself said, on April 3, 1968, “It’s non-violence or non-existence here today.”

Peace to all.

Love, Brian
