A Death to Remember

Happy Death day to Osama bin Laden.

I know he was a terrorist, the mastermind behind many other people's deaths, one of the causes of war...

yet it feels strange to me to celebrate someone's death.

Am I glad we found him and he can no longer cause terror? Yes.
Do I think detaining him / having a trial would have ignited further tensions? Yes.
Does this logic lead me to being glad he is out of the world? Yes.
Was justice served? Probably.
Do I celebrate? No. I just can't.

But I am glad he is gone.
