As news spread that Osama bin Laden had been killed by American forces Sunday, some were cheering, toasting the terrorist’s demise and posting celebratory notes online.
There were reports of loud noises across Mitchell Sunday night and many of them seem tied to the news of bin Laden’s death.
Was that proper? Should America and our allies be pleased that Osama is dead and by our hands? He repeatedly expressed his hatred of our nation and people and masterminded attacks on the United States that killed about 3,000 of our people, most of them civilians who had done nothing to him.
I admit to feeling good, almost giddy, at reports of his death. Should we regret such emotions? Is the death of any human a thing to mourn?
Or was this justice for a terrorist, a hate-filled man who murdered innocent people?
