"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

Not that I didn't agree with Alex's 'the wicked witch is dead' response as well.

Just sayin'

My post did have a touch of irony that probably went under. Because, in fact, nothing has really changed, nothing's been solved (even though another part of me says he got what was coming to him, and there was no other alternative). Agree with the quote you posted too, even though we live in a world where light and love seem so far out of reach that it'll remain an ideal, and violence is the only option if we do anything at all.

I don't know if I read your response so much as ironic as resigned, I thought, one wicked witch is dead but there'll always be another to take their place...ding dong. The media asks, 'Is Al Qaeda dead?' Hardly.

I'm not sorry for what we did but I am somewhat dismayed at our response to it.

And it's not like I believe in The Secret but unless we do believe that there can be a world of light & love, there never will be. It's all in us and up to us.

I had honestly not heard it before, so glad it 's now been brought to my attention. I could have imagined it would be one of your favorites. You have good taste in quotes :D
