A Police Officer

One day when I was at the church office, someone rang a bell. I opened the door, but I was surprised to see a police officer entering into. I thought for the moment whether I did something wrong.

“In the inescapable flux, there is something that abides; in the overwhelming permanence, there is an element that escapes into flux. Permanence can be snatched only out of flux; and the passing moment can find its adequate intensity only by its submission to permanence. Those who would disjoin the two elements can find no interpretation of patent facts…. The perfect realization is not merely the exemplification of what in abstraction is timeless.

However, did he have any authority to kill many people?

10 years later:
Many people are rejoicing over the death of Osama Bin Laden.
However, do they have any authority to kill Cain (Osama Bin Laden)?
Do they have any authority to rejoice his death?

If we say “yes” to these questions, there would be no answer for the peace in the world. How can we stop circularity of evil?

Do you feel or recognize any critical difference, a turning point, or any political symptom in your life or in the world after the death of Osama Bin Laden? Do you think the world would be better or more peaceful after his death? What is the meaning of his death? Why did he die?
