Don’t get me wrong. I’m glad Osama Bin Laden is dead. He was a very bad man. However, I don’t feel very comfortable with the fact of people shouting, “USA! USA!” outside of the White House in a giant mob. All I can think of is that there are people in the world who would view that as incredibly insulting. I know that I would be terribly insulted if people were out in the streets cheering if Obama died. (Of course, I realize that Obama and Osama are not nearly in the same league! But that doesn’t mean that other folks in the world don’t think so.)

Anyhow, I’m glad Osama is dead. I just wish we wouldn’t glory in anyone’s death.
