Just a reminder

“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. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction. – Martin Luther King

Stop, breathe, and remember this: there’s still more Osama bin Ladens, Hilters, Stalins, and Pol Pots around the world, just like there are still Mother Teresas, Ghandis, Martin Luther King Jrs, and John Paul IIs. You just have to know which side you’re on.

Hate begets hate, and violence begets violence. Be the change in the world you want to see.

I got a million cliches, but I’ll spare you.

Also, the quote below  that you see running around on Facebook, is the wrong one.

“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.”
–Martin Luther King, Jr.

Although, I really do hope one of the soldiers in the bin Laden operation turns out to be a gay athesit minority from Iowa who emigrated to the United States. That would make a lot of people explode from trying to comprehend it.

Anyways, let’s move on, shall we?

Giant sigh of relief

“Tonight I can report to the American people and to the world, that he United States has conducted an operation that has killed Osama bin Laden — the leader of al-Qaeda and a terrorist who is responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women, and children.”

–President Barack Obama (via The Daily What)
