the news of Osama bin Laden’s death

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.

~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"The ultimate consummation of justice is reconciliation, not retribution." ~ Heather Lyn

My feelings: I probably will not mourn for Osama bin Laden but I will not be celebrating his death either. I hope our response as Americans elevates our humanity.

…now that I've seen the reactions on social media and TV, my hope was not realized. I go to bed saddened tonight.
