I abhor the crimes that Osama perpetrated against the US.
I grieve for the loss of lives on 911 and for all those who have given their lives in the war against terror since then.
I'm proud of our country and those men who bravely fight to insure our freedom.
But I cannot condone slaughter without due justice. When we stoop to the tactics of evil, doesn't that contaminate us?
Someone posted this quote in a comment today, they gave credit for it to MLK Jr, but I cannot find it amongst his quotes. However, no matter who originally said it, it sums up how I feel about this current situation.
"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" - Unknown.
