A Response

In response to the action of U.S. troops last night, I borrow words from a man I dearly admire and respect:

"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" -- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

  1. I love that quote and respect and admire you a great deal for posting it and taking a stand against this disturbing hatred. We all were shocked and horrified when Fundamentalist Muslims partied in the streets after 9/11, but many in our country are doing the same thing. Unfortunately all this has done is make him a martyr and will bring on retribution.
