No joy in my heart

“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.” ~ Jessica Dovey
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

  1. Thank you for that, Katharine. It is sad to see people rejoicing for this death. That reaction is part of the reason for the original crime.

    Thanks for this; I’m disturbed by the celebration of this killing. The King quote fits perfectly.
