I don’t know what to make of my reaction to the killing of Osama bin Laden. I’m struck by the unseemly reaction of all the people cheering etc. I happen to think this is very unattractive and isn’t the way I would like America to be. It’s important that justice is served but revenge and hate aren’t pretty. War and killing aren’t pretty. Celebrating them is disturbing. Taking a life is not a joyful affair.
