I do not believe everyone has the right to live just because one was given life; however, I also do not believe we, as Americans, should parade in the streets without our dignity, as we did and are doing when Osama bin Laden was killed.   I'm not saying not to have a party, just not a public one - not today.  And I say this as someone personally affected by the 9/11 tragedy.

I don't know; I'm just a little uncomfortable with the whole partying in the streets at such a solemn time.   A year from now, maybe, a party.   But not now.   Instead of taking to the streets of New York City or anywhere else celebrating anyone's death, we should be there with flags in hand, looking dignified in front of the world as we solemnly and victoriously march in solidarity for our 9/11 fallen.  The march should have been about them.   Isn't that for whom and what we stand; protection of our country and our people?  

We look no differently to viewers across the pond than the supporters of those responsible for 9/11 when they were joyfully cheering our civilian deaths on 9/11.   It is all on tape - as is our 'celebration'.   It disappoints me, yes, but it also embarrasses me.   The whole jumping up and down needs to be done in the privacy of homes or at a poker table drinking a beer.   Other than the opposable thumb, that's what makes us civilized; the ability to control our emotions, not let our emotions control us.  

So please, let us show our unity as a people with pride and respect for our dead and their families by marching with flags or candles, minus the party - this year anyway.

:shock: Was anybody wondering why thousands of students were parading in front of the TV camera(s)at midnight, instead of doing some extra studying? Subsequently, student's watching student's actions in other cities, eventually trickled across our nations cities - similar to "Monkey See - Monkey Do." :whistle: TV = Cell Phones = Student Frivolity = Stupidity! A formula for idiotic fun & wasting of time & efforts. :angry: I didn't waste my time watching them either. :P
