Mourning Has Broken

"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy." - Jessica Dovey

"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

May the Fourth be with you.


  1. What wise words.

  2. Yes. I understand the sense of relief, and even admit to feeling it, but "celebration" seems so completely inappropriate, and leads . . . where?

  3. Nothing to celebrate. There are other crazies out there thinking murderous thoughts. It is unspeakably sad to do such horrible acts in the name of religion, any religion.

  4. Thank you so much for your very sweet comment on my blog!
    I'm one of the ones who thought Kate Middleton's wedding dress was absolutely beautiful; elegant, demure and appropriate.
