On This Day

 Not being a strongly politically opinionated person, never the less I am posting a quote I read on Facebook today. While it is true that this one man has commandeered as much death and destruction as others in our history, this quote still seems appropriate. I find it hard to celebrate the death of anyone. While it may have been the right thing to do, as a Christian, I find it hard to be something to be proud of ....
"I will 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
