Am I strange in thinking that it's totally wrong to rejoice in the death of Osama Bin Laden? I know he was evil...I know he deserved to die, but I find it sickening to watch the celebrations from America being flashed across TV screen all over the world. What does this really say about the mentality of supposedly civilised human beings in the 21st Century?
Remember the words of Martin Luther King Jr:
"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"
NB. I copied and pasted the above quote from Facebook...as did many others. It would seem that the quote isn't entirely accurate. That doesn't bother me at all because they're good words and I'd still stand by them whoever wrote them.
