osama bin laden is dead

As much as I appreciate the news of Osama bin laden‘s death I am troubled by some of the news clips showing young people rejoicing at his death.  You have probably seen the clips of young, college age, people waving and cheering on the Washington D.C. streets.  I am happy he is dead, and I hope it will help cool things down but, I am reminded of the clips from various Muslim nations, just after 911, that show about the same thing going on the those countries.

While his death was necessary  it is, to my mind, a sad thing that we can take such joy in the death of anyone, no matter how evil we see them.
