Who Wants The Whole World Blind?

In September/October of 2002 America was abruptly strucken with a series of what seemed to be random killings by a sniper. You all know the story and the man, John Allen Muhammad who we came to know as the DC sniper. So this blog is not so much about him as it is the act of taking a life.

This country and countries abroad have been practicing the death penalty for as long as documented history reflects. Even in the Bible people were stoned for certain acts or crimes against the law. I understand that this is something that seems very much excepted as it has been going on for thousands of years. Sometimes time alone makes things feel right or alright for that matter, but I'd like to put forth that no matter how long something wrong has been going never morphs into right. It is absolutely wrong to take a life.

Im well aware that the death penalty and abortion are topics that one should stay clear of but, this is my blog and Ill blog about what I wish. Who do these people think they are to take the life of someone else? The irony to me is that they usually take the life because the convicted took a life, or multiple lives. So logically, Id think that the executioners life should be taken as well right? This is nonsense. Continuing to practice an eye for an eye will leave the entire world blind.

I pray for the families of the victims- all of them including Mr. Muhammad TNT BabyKayks
