In light of recent historical events, there’s only really one song I can post today.
Even though, this song is about national pride, to me, this is an over-exaggerated sense of pride, even a little bit blind. It’s silly, but somewhat right on the mark as well. I don’t think everything America does is perfect, this country is far from perfect. It also feels weird rejoicing over someone’s death, even if that person was bad. I think, what is good about Osama bin Laden’s death, is that the families of 9/11 get closure, and that he will not be harming any more people from now on.
A friend posted this link on my Facebook, and I wanted to share it as well, I think it better sums up what I’m feeling.
”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.
