Last night Kerry and I came home from a small getaway to see the news plastered with celebration. When I heard what "we" were celebrating, my stomach dropped. My heart and mind have been heavy over the matter all day. I am saddened by "our" reaction.
I do not know much about politics, and I am horrible at debate, and I have now re-written this post a number of times. The bulk of today's post has now been deleted because the following quotations (which I'm sure you have already read at some point on the net today) says more of what I am feeling than anything I have come up with...(even if it is a fake MLK quote.)
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
Celebrate in life, and in hope and in LOVE.
