This post has been ruminating in my head since President Obama came on tv to announce they got Bin Laden. I hesitated a bit to even post this, but since no one's really been stopping by, it's not like I'm gonna get hate comments.
Is it just me? Or does anyone else find it disturbing the reaction of some people around the world? And when I say around the world, I also mean Americans. No doubt the man did evil things. No doubt he should pay for his crimes against society...but is it really appropriate to celebrate his death to the extent that some people have according to the media? And is it really appropriate to profit from it by making and selling T-shirts, mugs and other chochkees? What does it say about our society as a whole that we gather and chant and sing songs to praise the fact that another human being has been killed by another human being? Don't get me wrong, I know he orchestrated the deaths of thousands of Americans, but really, is this kind of behavior appropriate? It's definitely not the Christian thing to do. Or, I'm guessing, something to be praised by other religions. I'm just saying...I found it embarrassing to watch the coverage of the "celebrations" in the media. It makes Americans look no better than people in other countries who celebrate the death of their most hated enemy.
And...while I'm on the subject...do we really need photographic proof?
