This annoys me..

I have seen this picture all over the internet:

People are sqeeee-ing all over themselves about the similarities between the two, but it has been photoshopped!

First, Cinderella was BLONDE!

And the ugly stepsisters? Come on now.. Don't you remember those horrible dresses?

Now, now, people. Such lies.

The Death of Bin Laden

"Bin Laden is dead."

I can't even tell you how many times I heard that sentence as those words were spoken over and over and over again during the CNN broadcast before Obama's speech.  Yet, it was not those words, or Obama's speech that shocked me last night.

It was this:

Look at the people, all of them, celebrating.  Screaming, jumping, climbing on signs, stopping traffic, well into the night.  It continued this morning.  It sickened me.  Why? Because it so much resembled the footage we all saw after 9/11:

Paliestinians jumping, screaming, stopping traffic - to celebrate lives being lost in America. 

Why? Why are we behaving as they do? Why are we putting ourselves on their level? 

Osama was captured and killed.  Some may breathe a sigh of relief, others may feel that justice is served. I personally believe that his killing was just. But there is no need for callous celebration for death.

I am proud to be an American. But, I don't believe in celebrating this.
