A somber post begins with the humor of an Internet meme. Me in a nutshell.
I’m not really one to editorialize, so I’ll skip detailing my personal reaction to Osama Bin Laden’s death and forgo analyzing what his departure from this world means for humanity, and I’ll spare you all my various opinions of and responses to everything that’s unfolded in the wake of May 1st’s announcement. Instead, I’ll just share a bit of wisdom everyone should keep in mind, courtesy of my friend’s Facebook page and a certain famous doctor and professor of peace and love:
“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.
