No-sama

“Osama Bin Laden is dead. So is a woman who was killed in the firefight, taken by Bin Laden’s people as a human shield. I want to know her name. I want the whole world to know her name, so at any point we think we can celebrate a human death, we’re reminded that no matter how much we try to justify it, the inevitable consequence of violence is sadness, pain, misery and loss.”

- Van Badham

“An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.”

- Mahatma Gandhi

Somewhere in Saudi a young Muslim terrorist is watching footage of people cheering in America and thinking to himself, “Those Christians are not so different from us afterall”

  1. “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.
