“Mommy they killed Bin Laden!” My daughter rushes into the living room to tell me the news. “It’s all over Facebook!”
My face must have dropped because she said, “What’s wrong?” Something akin to sadness washed over me when I heard the news. I had the same feeling when I read that Kadhafi’s youngest son and three grandchildren were killed in a NATO air strike.
What is happening here? Sure feels like world war to me.
911 was tragic. We needed to capture Bin Laden. He needed to be done. Kadhafi needs to be done. People cannot kill other people without retribution… Or can they? WHY ARE WE KILLING SO MANY PEOPLE?
We need to be done too. What ever happened to prisons? Trials? I know it’s going to be necessary to lose lives sometimes, but so many? And so much rejoicing over an other’s death. I’m confused. I’m sad.
Where do you think the energy of an evil person goes when they die? I’d rather let them sit in jail for a lifetime and contemplate their actions. Perhaps spirit will have an opportunity to refine and transmute the darkness as they become aware. Maybe not, I know. But for some, it would.
I would not wish the 911 attacks on anyone. They were horrible and are etched in my memory as deeply as everyone else’s. I’m just concerned that we are perpetuating violence. I like what Jimmy Carter is doing through the Carter Center. He communicates. Listens. Connects. Negotiates. And probably prays.
That’s what I’m doing now. Praying. I pray for all of us to be peace. To find another way to stop the madness.
I honor President Obama and our troops. I bless all who have lost loved ones in terrorist attacks. I pray for the elevation and healing of all souls on this strange and confusing day.Share on Facebook
