regarding osama

Here's a quote that articulates the moment well first from an unknown source: I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy.
Then from Martin Luther King jr. : '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.'--MLK Jr.

Good to hear from you, Charise.
Martin Luther King said this in the 1960s!

The words I keep thinking are: practice peace.
