Reflection, Not Rejoicing

Osama Bin Laden is dead.

The single response that makes any sense to me comes from the Vatican. Please click through and read the link below. It doesn't matter if you are Catholic, Christian, animal, vegetable or mineral. Death is always devastating for someone.

A news commentator this morning said that the predominant emotion during the "celebration" at ground zero yesterday was not one of celebration but more one of unification. Unfortunately, it's hard to distinguish the celebratory fist pump from the unified fist pump.

Thanks for this post, Monica, and may God have mercy on his soul.
