Osama bin Laden: Dead At Last

Osama bin Laden was just officially confirmed dead by President Obama. I hope that this triumph brings a bit of closure to those who lost loved ones in the September 11th attacks and the resulting war. While I listen to the periodic chant of "USA! USA! USA!" erupt from the first floor of the LaFortune Student Center at Notre Dame, I also hope we pause to once again celebrate the lives that were lost almost ten years ago. But certainly, I do not fault anyone who pops open a bottle of champagne - it's been a long time coming.
