Amen! What a profoundly compassionate article. I felt the same way when Osama Bin Laden was killed…Really? We are going to sing, “Ding Dong the Witch Is Dead?” I felt relieved, while still much compassion, as I will when Phelps lets it all go, that there is one less person spreading hate. But to celebrate a death? His actions speak for themselves. No point in spitting on the dying. Thanks for a great article!
