This morning all the news was about Osama Bin Laden’s death.  I’ve been surprised by the range of reactions exhibited around the world.  Some of my random thoughts:

Justice: Bin Laden has killed thousands of people, he deserved to be  brought to justice, his actions had consequences.

Safer: in theory the world should be a safer place without Bin Laden – only time will tell – especially given Bin Laden wasn’t in operational charge over the last few years due to his concerns about compromising his location.

Sadness: the Bible teaches us that human life is precious, that includes the lives of terrorists. It is possible to believe killing Bin Laden was the right thing to do, and still be saddened by it.

Arrogance: Some of the scenes from around the world show street reveling, this seems in direct contrast with how angry the West got at the scenes of street celebrations in other countries following the terrorist acts.

  1. Chris, forgive me if this is a bit off topic, but… This will make any

    person furious: Diets actually make you gain pounds over time and that has turned out to be more and more apparent within

    the weight issues epidemic that\\\’s negatively effecting this kind of unhealthy food, minimal exercise generation. Are you concerned that stadium seats have

    to be increased to support the rise in

    individuals increasing, ahem…girth? This means that we are being

    a larger place (and never in an exceedingly good way) of men and women than all of us have ever have previously which is before two full

    decades alone. Our kids experience unhealthy weight related

    problems by way of example diabetes in addition to coronary disease.

    I just read that in a research project seventy obese American youngsters from the age ranges of six to 19 had been subjected to

    several battery of medical tests to check out the end result that the eating habits packed

    with fat had on their more youthful body. The final results ended up being eye opening. All had

    high cholesterol levels and were included in the high-risk group of

    having coronary disease and heart failure that a few subjects ended up already expressing symptoms of.

    Could there be any kind of hope

    for anyone? I believe that your answer should be yes. Apparently

    virtually all we need is definitely some diet and exercise. We virtually all have to begin doing it Right away!
