I awoke this moring to learn of Osama bin Laden’s death. My first reaction was relief for the country and the families and victims of 9/11. I marvelled too at the heroism of the soliders who managed what appeared to be mpossible and honored the intelligence teams who have worked for years to right a henious wrong.
But for me, the time is one for reflection rather than ”celebration.” Osama bin Laden was a vctim of beliefs that hardened into zealotry. But millions of people around the globe will mourn this day as much as we in the west rejoice. Today, let us celebrate that justice has been achieved. Let us celebrate that reason and not the death of a man.
