Alternative Voices to Triumphal Celebration:

On the announced killing of

Osama bin Laden

“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.

“How have the past ten years of aerial bombardments, night raids, death squads, assassinations and drone attacks in Afghanistan benefited the U.S. people…?  Have we defeated terrorism or created greater, deeper hatred toward the U.S.?”

— Kathy Kelly  –Voices of Creative Nonviolence
