Mission Accomplished

When I first heard the news, I thought it was a joke.

Turns out, it isn't.

Osama Bin Laden is dead.

Tonight, a nation has come together to celebrate. Not to celebrate the death of a man, but to celebrate justice. It isn't about politics, race, or religion. It's about justice.

To those lost on 9/11, to those who live on without them, may you feel at peace. May you experience some sense of closure.
"I've never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure." —Mark Twain

Personally, I don't think it's a good example to set by celebrating the death of another human being- no matter how horrible they are. Like Mark Twain put it, it's not a good idea to wish death, but I do think there is relief and hope restored after so many years. I think we're just a little misconstrued on how to execute that.
