The death of bin Laden: not cause to celebrate

The death of Osama bin Laden should not be a cause for enthusiastic celebration but should instead be a time for sober reflection.

Our thoughts should be of all those who have died needlessly these past 10 years; from New York City to Washington, D.C.; from Baghdad to Kandahar.

Let us turn away from thoughts of vengeance fulfilled and toward the hope that this is the end of one of the darkest chapters in human history.
