Just got me thinking. I don't want my children celebrating this, I don't want them thinking killing EVER is a good thing. Yes, I am overjoyed that he can no longer hurt anyone else and that is fine but at the same time I don't want my children hearing people speaking like they are around me at the moment "glad we killed the bastard" was what I just heard at the store. It was necessary but not something that should be commented on like this.
I have just got into a verbal argument with a woman at the store who was literally laughing as she watched the screen in there. I am happy he can kill no longer but are we not making ourselves as bad as them by celebrating this.
I'm trying to protect my children from this now, my husband is military and even he thinks this is horrible the way people are in our area.

It's actually very insulting to say that the people who are celebrating are "just as bad". We're talking about a man who murdered thousands of innocent men, women and children, who spread hatred, terror and pain just because we are different. how can you even begin to think that people who feel happy for his death are "just as bad" as he is? That's just uncalled for. This is a wonderful article written by an Orthodox Jewish woman I deeply admire and respect, which explains not only that we're allowed to celebrate the fall of evil, we MUST celebrate it.
