Love Gives Life and Hate Takes Life

"He will never be a martyr, because he has nothing to give. He is a criminal, a cold-blooded murderer. He is not giving his life; we are taking his life.” 
Prosecuting attorney Colonel Michael Mulligan at the sentencing of convicted Fort Hood shooter Major Nidal Hasan, for the 2009 massacre on post that left 13 people dead and 32 others wounded. The next day a military jury recommended the death penalty for Hasan.

"I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." 
The apostle Paul, speaking of Jesus' crucifixion, which gave Paul a new life - Galatians 2:20
