Ethan and I spent some time this afternoon watching Obama's speech, reading about the death of Osama, and looking at pictures of peoples' reactions. Then he asked me,

"But mom, in the Bible it says we aren't supposed to murder people. Isn't it wrong that they killed him?" (he's in the middle of reading Exodus so the ten commandments are fresh in his mind). Megan asked me a similar thing later in the day. We talked about justice and how God sometimes commanded people to go to war for righteous reasons. But in the end, it was hard to give any satisfactory answer to them.

I'm pretty ok with just letting them wrestle with it rather than giving them a definitive answer. I think it was just interesting that they ARE wrestling with it.
