Today marks a momentous day in modern history with the demise of Osama bin Laden and for many, a feeling of closure, has finally arrived. In the face of terror (or any form thereof), we must stand united regardless of our race, religion, or country for it is a common enemy that afflicts us all. For some, today is about celebration; for me, it’s a day of reflection to realize what our freedom really costs us and to offer our thanks to those who guard it with their lives.
“Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night 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.
