My son wrote (using twitter) quite elegantly about not only the jubilation that he and 15,000 others felt Sunday night upon hearing that the US Navy Seals had finally “done in” Bin Laden, but also about why for his generation this is part of the defining moment. He wrote, in part,
“For those questioning the appropriateness of the celebrations on Sunday night, especially at PSU, keep in mind that many of us were In middle school. Those were the most impressionable days of our lives. It completely changed our lives and views.”
He wrote much more, and I took the liberty of making it more readable, and posting it over at our joint blog, http://thefathersonchats.com.
Please, go read his thoughts, and share yours. These thoughts are the ones we need to share, and preserve.
