We awoke to the news that Osama Bin Laden was dead.
Ten long years and thousands of lives later, the United States has exacted its revenge.
World leaders all agreed that the world is now a safer place. I hope and pray that they’re right and that this doesn’t presage another decade of terrorism and fear…..more wars…..more deaths.
“The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. You may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. You may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate, nor establish love. Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, 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.
