Do You Feel Any Relief, Joy, Satisfaction or Greater Safety at the News of Bin Ladens Death? Does it Bring Any Closure On 9/11 for you ?
Strangely my reactioin to this mornings news that Osma Bin Laden has been killed by US agents was..so what? This is a headline? Do we really care any more about Bin Laden? This does nothing to alter in the ground of my being the overwhelming tragedy of that day and the days that followed and all that was revealed about lapses in US security. Aren't we so past our pre-occupation with Bin Laden? Does his death end the threat of terrorism? Are we still living with the same level of guardedness about terrorism as we were 10 years ago or have other things moved to the fore of what is terrifying and urgent?
What was you reaction? Is this great joyous news to celebrate or just a foot note to an unfortgettably tragic time in our modern lives? Is this freally headline news? The most important thing that happened on our globe today?
There is an excellent arrtcle in the paper today about the complexities and many undercurrent Bin Ladens Death has brought to the surfacehttp://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/42870277/ns/world_news-the_new_york_times/
