Bin Laden? Bin Shot. - The Watchtower of Destruction: The Ferrett's Journal
Bin Laden? Bin Shot.|
That's what drives me nuts.
Out here in Iowa, people are cheering and dancing around, whereas those who suffered losses are cheering but are not so NUTS about it, from what I see. My friends, my family, all are, "Glad he's dead, no one is coming back, things that changed remain that way" and are moving on. Even those that did "dance" would later post "this is closure, and that's about it". The only thing my husband said, when he heard about how it happened was, "Good. He knew fear." Many wanted him to suffer physically. But for those of us who had it hit a bit close to home? I think we thought a lot about the final moments, the final phone calls, and the "missing" posters for months, the questions, the pain. If I felt a need for revenge, it isn't the death, but the fear, petty as that is. That he may have known actual terror for a moment.
That's gut feelings. I try to be a good Quaker, but damn, as a New Yorker, sometimes it is hard.
