You May Say I'm a Dreamer, But I'm Not the Only One

I'm not one to post about heavy hitting news, especially anything involving politics, but I feel as though I need to get this off of my chest.

Last night, I heard news that Osama Bin Laden had not only been found, but killed. I immediately became uneasy. I honestly didn't know what to think. This is huge news. I understand that he killed thousands of people in my country, but I don't know if I should feel happy to learn about his death.

Do I stand behind my own country, cheering on and supporting the people that have captured our number one most wanted enemy? Or do I remain active in my peaceful nature and feel disgusted by those people that are celebrating a death?

I went to bed last night feeling unsettled. All I could think about was that somewhere, followers of Bin Laden are already making plans to not only avenge his death, but harm the people of America in the process. I don't feel any safer. I feel scared. Of course I feel more than honored for the people that risk their lives for our safety, but I'm not sure that we as Americans have considered the repercussions for what has happened.

I can't bring myself to watch the news. Say what you'd like about that, but I think I'd rather live in my own peaceful little bubble where I imagine and pray that the world can live as one.

I'm sorry if this is all just babble to you. I'm not sure exactly how I feel, nevermind explain it. Maybe this song can better say what I'm trying to.

I totally understand what you've just said and i'm quite relieved i'm not the only one <3. Its really difficult because i know that he did awful things but i still have this nagging doubt that killing someone is never the best option. I'm glad i'm not the only one xx
