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.
just wanted to put my thoughts on this down somewhere.
I really have no problem w/ the US going and getting this guy and finishing the job. He declared war on this country and attacked. We were well within our right to seek this end.
I don’t think that Bin Laden should have been afforded the dignity of a Muslim burial, and I don’t blame the americans for the way they handled it..
I guess my surprise is over the truly joyous celebration of a man’s death.
I’m not shocked, as I understand what he symbolizes and I understand the pain and death that he has brought upon this country and many of it’s people. I understand the sentiment. I feel it too.
I believe he got what he deserved…
I guess I’m surprised, because to me it is a reminder of how things used to be.. and a reminder of things lost.. and his death by no means restores any of that. His death sadly doesn’t bring anyone back to life, nor does it bring any troops home. It doesn’t secure victory in an never ending war, nor does it mean we’re safe from attack.
I suppose it was just an overwhelming outpouring of years worth of emotions, missing loved ones, increased security, and the many other drastic changes that have happened over the past 10 years… and I am by no means judging anyone for there reactions.
but as for myself..
today I feel no need to celebrate… today I feel need to reflect.
Saturday baseball on the bay…
for those of you who have not seen these… I was lucky enough to help organize an even honoring the Legendary Pete Rock a few years back… also had the great chance to sit and talk with the man himself about some of my favorite tracks… enjoy!!

It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.
