That question has been raised in the wake of the spontaneous celebration that occured in response to OBL’s demise. I certainly understand those of faith who hesitate to cheer the end of any life, and I understand those who are uneasy with the ‘party’ atmosphere that emereged on Sunday.
But I celebrate.
I celebrate the end to his reign of destruction.
I celebrate the justice obtained for his innocent victims.
I celebrate the unparalleled courage of our military forces.
I celebrate the awesome skill Seal Team 6 displayed in taking OBL down.
I celebrate the fact they gave him an opportunity to surrender.
I celebrate the fact they minimized civilian casulties and collateral damage.
I celebrate Presidents Bush and Obama for their dogged pursuit of this monster.
I celebrate the intelligence personel who worked for years, unheraled, to bring him down.
I celebrate the countless innocents, Muslim and Christian, who will now not be victims of his murderous terrorism.
I celebrate the untold number of young pople who won’t be poisoned by his evil ideology.
I celebrate the fact OBL had to face his Maker and account for his actions in this life on Sunday.
I celebrate. D.GOOCH
