Ezekiel and I recently watched Spike Lee's movie, "Do The Right Thing". A classic! He's been quoting parts of the movie everyday. While he was doing his homework tonight I noticed something on his fingers. I asked what it was, and he said it was love and hate - like Radio Raheem. He had the love/hate on the wrong hands, but that's ok. The message stuck with him.
Love always beats hate.
Here's Radio Raheem's Love/Hate speech.
"Let me tell you the story of Right Hand, Left Hand. It's a tale of good and evil. Hate: it was with this hand that Cane iced his brother. Love: these five fingers, they go straight to the soul of man. The right hand: the hand of love. The story of life is this: static. One hand is always fighting the other hand, and the left hand is kicking much ass. I mean, it looks like the right hand, Love, is finished. But hold on, stop the presses, the right hand is coming back. Yeah, he got the left hand on the ropes, now, that's right. Ooh, it's a devastating right and Hate is hurt, he's down. Left-Hand Hate KOed by Love."
