A thoughtful post

Since the death of Osama Bin Laden, I have been mulling over in my mind how I was appalled by Americans dancing in the street over his death.
A friend from Rainbow Artists sent this quote around:

"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
