"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."
- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

I agree. It's been strangely unnerving to observe some rejoicing over his death. No matter how evil or what evil actions he's committed. He's gone but evil still exists.
