I have yet to cheer in the streets or have a drink to someone's death.

I was really angry when people were parading about campus when Osama died. I know, the man was horrible. I know, the man was responsible for a lot of deaths. I'm not sad that he died, but I will never celebrate it.

I'm paranoid and I'm on a lot of serious medication. When I'm under the impression that someone has done me wrong and that they should die, I'm usually wrong. So I try not to think that way.

I mean, I used to think that about my boyfriend, but I was completely wrong. I thought he was a sadist. But he's harmless. Disappointing? A little. I love sadists.

I haven't really had any sort of grudge big enough to really parade around because somebody died yet.
I can be relieved, sure.

For example, Osama's death was relieving. I wouldn't really say I was happy, I was mostly just interested in what's going to happen next.
Plus I'm young and its interesting to watch and see how it affects history.

when people like osama bin laden die, yes. mass murderers brought it on to themselves and should expect no sympathy from society. it's only natural to celebrate because you know that some justice was brought to the families of their victims.

I would never celebrate the death of anyone, be they A. Hitler, O.b. Laden or J. Stalin.
Yes; I'm glad they're gone, but it's a long way from "We got him!" to dancing in the streets.
Some people in the middle east were dancing in the streets when the twin towers were hit. I don't want to be on their level!

I would never celebrate the death of anyone. Even Osama Bin Laden. Not even Hitler.

I've never celebrated anyone dying.

I have had a small fund which I pay a little into every payday.

I call it my Thatcher Fund. When she dies I'm having a huge party.

They'll be Champagne, Pâté de Fois Gras, children's entertainers, music, fireworks, drinking and laughter.

"I've never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries? with great pleasure." Usually attributed to Mark Twain, but probably a misquote of Clarence Darrow.

No, generally not, even though I didn't exactly mourn bin Laden (in fact, I bought a bottle of Chardonnay)

No, that would be awful.
9 yrs ago - Thursday 2/23/12 - 3:04:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
You don't do that. Its barbaric and war-like.
8 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 4/11/12 - 3:10:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, because even if you hate them, other people really cared about them and they had a life outside what you think too.

I just think when ,like,Osama died,That the world will be a better place.Not for him.

I view this from a spiritual paradigm. When my grandfather died, there was no doubt in my mind that he was in a better place and while I didn't mourn per say, I also didn't celebrate, either. I was quietly happy that his suffering was done and that he was finally at peace. Now, on the other hand, I have been to funerals of loved ones that we weren't so sure about. these types of services are a lot sadder. But, in either case, there is no real celebration.

Now, as far as Osama and the like, I don't celebrate. I'm just happy that they are gone and can't hurt anyone else. There is also the satisfaction that they are facing the one perfect judge and will get what they deserve.
