Pride

October 21, 2011

There is a voice in the back of my mind that tells me not to celebrate. A death is a death, violence only begets more violence; but several times in the past several years, a death brings a wave of relief. Another evil man has met his end, a nation can move on.

An international coalition stepped in, prevented a crisis from becoming a holocaust, offered support, and declared an end date to operations in seven months. America was a big part of that; too big, but definitely a step in the right direction. Delta was part of that. As critical of our military as I’ve been this week*, the clips offered some much-needed perspective.

A young Libyan woman gave NBC her reaction: Finally! Finally! We get the freedom! Do you know that, do you know that feeling? That you get to say everything that you wanted!

In news of another front, tonight President Obama announced that he would fulfill his campaign promise to end the war in Iraq.

I jokingly told Delta “You must have cleaned that place up nice.” He is safely out of the suck, so there are three endings this week.

Both Buddhism and Christianity identify pride as the root of all sin, even pride in one’s husband.  But as far as emotions go, pride beats the sh*t outta fear.

*I’ll talk about it when I have the necessary signatures.
