Watching the newscasts last night as well as reading facebook and twitter updates I couldn't help but feel conflicted over what was happening. The death of a man who helped organize the death of many Americans, coming after 10 years of searching, certainly should be cause for celebration, no? And of course on my campus...(I live on a college campus remember?)...there was chanting in the streets, fireworks, and I'm sure, no shortage of students skipping class today.
For me, however, it just doesn't feel right to celebrate someone...anyone...being killed. My good friend Aileen is here visiting for a couple of days and her sister, Maggie, put up a facebook status that genuinely sums up my feelings for the situation.
"Celebrate Justice, Not Death.
God Bless America."
How do you feel...were you among those screaming our National Anthem when Obama announced the news? As someone who is not overtly politically minded, I would love to hear your thoughts. Comment away...
