Gadhafi is dead

The big news of the day: Libya’s ruler Moammar Gadhafi, is now dead. I must admit that Libya wasn’t on the front of my radar of things to track after awhile, but I definitely knew who Gadhafi was.

As with Osama bin Laden’s death, that people are celebrating his death disturbs me a little. I can understand why they do it, but celebrating the end of a human life, the end of one’s existence, always seemed excessive to me.

To everyone in Libya, best of luck to you. You have a long road ahead of you, but you can do it. You’ve already shown that you want a country free of Gadhafi’s rule. Now show that you want not just a country free of his rule, but a country free of Gadhafi-like rule.
