danny pearl is dead

don't know if any of you have been following the story of Danny Pearl, a Wall St. Journal reporter who was kidnapped in Pakistan. I work for the Journal's web site and we just got word this afternoon that the Pakistani government and U.S. intelligence have evidence that proves Danny is dead.

I became a journalist because I believe it is important to educate people about what is going on in the world, that knowledge is important. Danny was simply trying to educate people. He could have easily given his captors a voice in our newspaper. Say what you want about how you think journalism is sleazy and sensational and we're too obsessed with stories about Monica Lewinsky. Danny Pearl was a reminder of what great journalists are.

The print and online Journal have been working in temporary offices since Sept. 11 [we were across the street from the Trade Center] and this is just another blow to us.

This is so sad and makes me so angry at the same time! The animals that did this must be destroyed!

Sleep
Sleep tonight
And may your dreams
Be realized
If the thunder cloud
Passes rain
So let it rain
Rain down on him
So let it be
So let it be


Sleep
Sleep tonight
And may your dreams
Be realized
If the thundercloud
Passes rain
So let it rain
Let it rain
Rain on him

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies
hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction....The chain reaction
of evil--hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars--must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of
annihilation.

-----Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength To Love, 1963.

That is so sad. How any group could think that capturing and killing an innocent journalist would further their cause is beyond me. His family will be in my prayers.

Revenge is not the answer. Only love can conquer hate. May he rest in peace.

His wife is seven months pregnant with their first child. God Bless him-he was only trying to do his job.

Those responsible still need to be brought to justice

His captors staged an interview,and while he was asking questions, they snuck up behind him and SLIT HIS THROAT.

Something in me is resisting the sadness. I want to be angry rather than sad. I'm not sure what is the right feeling to feel. The world is so evil, sometimes I just have to ask God how long will we have to endure it. Oh well, at least if I think about it, this lifetime of evil does not compare to the eternity of goodness that is to come. It won't even be a drop in a sea but more minuscule than that. I hold on to that thought in the darkest times.
