Osama is Dead

So many people are posting things for Christians to read about this day. Osama is dead, but should we celebrate? I think yes. Wholeheartedly yes. He’s gone from this world. He made his choice. Sure, I don’t wish anyone to go to Hell, but he (most likely) did and that was his personal choice. While he was on this Earth he killed many Americans. After a long and drawn out game of cat and mouse, we killed him back. Justice was served. He deserved to die, and die at the hands of the American people he did. We forgave, but we did not forget, and we collected on the debt he owed. It sucks that he’s probably in Hell for eternity, but I do not weep for this man. I understand the position of some people, but I do not necessarily agree with it. Did the Israelites not rejoice when delivered from Egypt? Did they not rejoice when they captured Jericho or any other nation? We rejoice that justice has found its way to America’s enemies.

The Morning Has Begun

This was a poem that I wrote that was used in an official “Narnia Easter Celebration” site. This was among about 15 pictures, poems, and artworks that were used in the gallery.

“The evening is over, the morning has begun.

How seemingly easy, the battle was won.

He conquered the evil, he brought out the light.

He defeated the tempter, with all of his might.

These things that we do, the words that we say,

are meaningless, compared to the depth of this day.

He rose again living, he came back to life,

so we greet him our groom, and us his sweet wife.

And so the play continues,

we dance on eternity’s hand,

we play in the chorus,

of the divinely formed band.

We wait for that day,

when we’ll again be united.

Our love for our Father

will soon be requited.

So until that day comes,

we wait and we learn,

our passion for “Aslan”

shall continuously burn.”

Capstone Project

In the spring 2012 semester I’ll be required to complete a “capstone” project. It’s sort of an “anything you want to make” senior project. My current plan is to do a musical-esque type short film. The plan is to do an entire album as one story. I won’t change the order of the songs, but I will clip them down a bit for time. The main idea should still be there though. Parts of every song will be used and be used in order. That’s really exciting for me. So far I’ve been in contact with people from Radiohead’s, Coldplay’s, RED’s, and Linkin Park’s camps. I’m seriously hoping to be able to use Linkin Park’s “A Thousand Suns” as the album for the project. I’ve already been writing a small love story around the album that I think can work. Here’s to hoping that I’ll get the go ahead from their people! 😀
