Great Momversation! I agree. I think it is never right or moral to celebrate someone’s death or their demise. However, to celebrate justice is always a good thing. And that’s what I am celebrating. However, we do need to be cautious – not naive – knowing that 1. there are thousands of terrorists ready to fill his spot (likely they already have) and 2. that radical Muslims are always ready to retaliate. So, while I’m glad that justice prevailed, I am also cautious knowing that cannot relax in our efforts – even for a second.

As a Christian, I never feel that it is right when people die not knowing Jesus as their Savior. He persecuted Christians, Muslims, Jews, everybody and so he is gone! HOWEVER, sometimes you must just smile and be glad to know that millions of $$$ are out of terrorists hands and while that will not stop them, it will impede their progress somewhat! Go US military and CIA! We are thankful that no one rested until the deed was done!

I was glad that such an evil spirit has left this earth. It feels right that good is prevailing…no matter how long it takes.

Celebrating someone’s death is counter-intuitive to most people, including me. Am I glad the US finally got Bin Laden? Yes. I remember that horrible day. I remember the innocent Americans that lost their lives, and I think they should have been the focus this week. They are the heroes and martyrs! Bin Laden prayed on weak and poor in the Middle East and turned many into terroists. The world is better without him, but this war is not over. I will celebrate when it is.

The world will be better off without him, as it was without Hitler. However, celebrating when there are thousands to take his place is premature. I think selling T shirts for the occasion is not only in bad taste but will inflame those who already hate us.

i don’t think there is any real reason to celebrate. I believe there will be many people happy to assume his role. We have not brought down all the terrorist cells, just one man who represented the face of terror to us.
