Gadhaffi’s Death and War

I found myself aghast and sick to the stomach yesterday and the day before after learning of Gadhaffi’s death in Libya. I find no joy in his death and most especially the manner in which it seems he was killed.

He was a dictator, and a perpetrator of atrocities of his own, but no man deserves to die at the hands of a mob or the revelling victors of war.

Why is it we found it so necessary to engage in war in Libya? Why is it so many rejoice at the death of another?

Are we to be now at war continually as far as the eye can see?

War is not the answer, and the bloody public execution of a man even less so.

Let us pray for peace. Pray hard, folks.
