I heard the news last night about Osama Bin Laden dying as part of a military action. All I could do was sit there. I thought of the people who have died, both here and in other countries. I thought of the gift of leadership that this man had, that was so twisted into hatred. But, when it came down to it and hearing the news, all I could feel was pity. I felt sorrow for the family of this man, family who will always have memories and who will always be impacted by his action. I felt pity for the people who rely on such hatred to make change in the world. It was a historic moment, one that will impact the world for years to come.
