why i cannot celebrate the death of osama bin laden

"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives,
but I will not rejoice in the death of one,
not even an enemy.
Returning hate for hate multiplies hate,
adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."

Martin Luther King, Jr

thanks to meammama, i stole this from her!

i keep coming back to the children who were apparently in the compound when the firefight began. what will be the repercussions of the terror they must have felt...
