Today was an interesting day.
I spent a good portion of the morning reading reports about the death of Osama Bin Laden. Of course, I knew about this development as soon as it occurred, but that didn’t stop me from indulging in the plethora of comments on Facebook this morning.
The overwhelming consensus is, people are proud to be Americans today.
And why shouldn’t we be? Despite being relatively new country by many standards, we are an incredibly devoted bunch. And there is something to be said for closure. The death of Bin Laden is exactly that kind of closure.
I do have serious reservations about celebrating the death of another human being, even if he was a sorry excuse for a human being. I will instead celebrate the closure, and the justice served. No matter what your opinions of justice are, I’m sure you will agree, he got what he so rightly deserved. And he will hopefully serve his final sentence in the afterlife…without the benefit of virgins.
Unless they are flesh eating zombie virgins...
That idea is officially copyrighted as mine, thank you very much!
Until the next time…I’ll be writing a new screenplay!
