Martin Luther King Jr. wrote:I will 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.

For all of you who think it's hilarious that the MLK quote hoax duped so many, you're missing the point; that quote captured the feeling of many yesterday who were both relieved but certainly not joyous about bin Laden's death. To focus on the hoax ¬ the sentiment doesn't so much show how easily duped we all are as how unbelievably cynical we have become. For me the quote stands, wherever it came from.
