No need to add to the video below, sometimes spoken words are needed more than written ones. Just know that the moral of this post is simple: fighting hatred with hatred is counterproductive, fighting fire with fire only ends up with two burn victims. Instead of protesting and marching, extend a hand of friendship and be love instead. If you agree with the message of the video below, use social media and spread the word using #IntentionalLove
