Only Light Can Do That

I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. ***Edited May 3, 2011 to reflect the actual quote of Dr. King, the initial part was misquoted*** "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.

Upon further reflection of the past day's events I am more convinved than ever that my initial response to the death of Osama Bin Laden was primal and carnal. Dr. King, a true ambassador of Christ--the prince of peace, speaks still from the grave. May I live into this; may I always represent Christ. These days have given me further needless evidence that I am still in process; becoming more like Jesus.
