An Eye for an Eye(with a bullet)-The Osama bin Laden Saga

I've gotta vent a little here and blow off some steam.  I'm not going to use this blog as a vehicle for my political views but I have to say that I am disappointed in the reaction from my peers all across the country to the news about Bin Laden.  He needed to be taken out for certain, our president and especially our troops carried out this mission to perfection and I am extremely proud today.  I am saddened to see young adults dancing in the streets with the flag and drinking and just being overzealous.  We should be happy today and proud of our troops but we should be remembering and celebrating the lives that he ended.  The families and friends of those lost on 9/11 should feel a small measure of peace but if we dance in the streets we are no better than the enemy.  Never forget who we are or who we can become and never give up.  If we can do that darkness will never prevail and it has no power over us.


  1. I agree. His death brings a satisfaction and sigh of relieve, but to dance and celebrate death degrades us.

  2. To celebrate anyone's death seems ... off to me. I agree it needed to be done.

  3. I'm with you on this one. Its nice to feel a little safer, but celebrating death doesn't jive with me.

  4. I try not to relish in anyone's death but I can't exactly feel bad about this one either.

    PS - btw stop by and grab your goodie!

  5. I agree. Yes, he was a nasty, murdering dictator who needed to get taken out, and now the world a breathe just a little easier, but I don't think Americans needed to dance in the streets in celebration. Nice post! If you'd like, please check out my blog about living the simple life:
