I am going to go out on a limb and say that I may have a different take on the events of Sunday May the 1st.
Osama Bin Laden is dead. When I found out, I didn’t even flinch. I can imagine a different reaction on May 1st 2002.
They attacked us. They accomplished just about everything they wanted to on one simple day. Our country hasn’t been the same since. We changed laws. Traveling now mega sucks. The majority of the country now lives in fear of terrorists. They truly TERRORIZED us. They won. We killed the ring leader 10 years later. 10 Fucking years. Not something to cheer about. Killing him doesn’t stop anything. Sure I do agree that it is nice that he is gone. But I really don’t see any reason to chant USA. I’m not a sore loser. I hate to lose. But USA, you lost this. Stop holding up the #1 finger on TV. It’s like the kid at school who is always picked last in dodgeball. But this one time he is picked 1st, just so he will feel good. What does he do. Yep he goes home and feels good. Sorry kid, but you suck at dodgeball. One small event shouldn’t make you feel good.
Has justice been done? I think so. But.. Does this bring closure to the lost loved ones from 9/11. No. Does this stop terrorism? No. Do we stop living in fear? No. Do laws change? No. Does traveling get easier? No. What is different now? Nothing. Yet people are on the streets celebrating. Remember when 9/11 happened and the people in the streets over there were celebrating the deaths of many Americans? I watch the news and get deja vu. Oh, but we are cheering for one death that took 10 years, which is 10 years too many. Twitter and Facebook are on fire. I can’t help but think it’s ridiculous.
Oh really quick. Can anyone guess one of the main reasons 9/11 happened? Is Religion a correct answer? Think so. Yet people over here are all about saying God Bless America. Speechless
