Osama Bin Laden

“If this means there is one less death in the future, then I’m glad for that.
. . But I just can’t find it in me to be glad one more person is dead,
even if it is Osama bin Laden.”

~ Harry Waizer, a World Trade Center survivor (here).

I have to agree with Mr. Waizer's deep ambivalence. I simply cannot find it in me to share in the glee and chanting and jubilation.
