Osama Killed - What it Means to American Culture

Obama just won the 2012 election.

Can we skip it and use that money to peace?

Probably not.

In spectacular fashion, last night the American people, and the whole world that was awake at the time, were interrupted with breaking news. Most of the eastern sea board was asleep. The President was up all day.

A covert operation had started and landed.

The result?

Osama is no more.


Sure, victory.

It only took 10 years, but we kept up the pursuit. Amazingly in a digital age he evaded capture for so long.

I'm at odds at what I would've preferred, Osama judged by judges, or judged by the bullet.

Either way the world is a safer place.

However, let's be careful.

The image of our nation isn't a bunch of boisterous college students chanting USA! in one breathe while chugging beer in the other.

We should claim victory in bringing the mastermind behind the change we've experienced in our nation in the past 10 years, immense change as a result of one bad man. But we shouldn't rejoice over death. That's too simple. That's to prehistoric. That's typical Taliban/Al Queda .

We, Americans, we need to be better, to be different, to reach out for better. Let's hope this is the start of better for our nation. We sure could use it.
