Thousands of people in New York gather at the corner of Church Street and Vesey Street at Ground Zero on May 2, 2011 shortly after the announcement by President Barak Obama of the killing of Osama Bin Laden by US Navy Seals. This was the scene at 12:56 AM (EDT) on May 2, 2011.
The crowd is celebrating the end of the threat posed by Osama bin Laden and is rejoicing at the justice finally achieved for the 2,977 victims on September 11, 2001.
TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE IT IS UNETHICAL OR IMMORAL TO CELEBRATE ANOTHER HUMAN BEING'S DEATH: Realize that the people celebrating in this video are rejoicing the end of the ongoing threat to their lives posed by a person who masterminded the murder of 2,977 innocent people on September 11, 2001 -- including Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and Jews -- from 56 different nations. They are rejoicing that Bin Laden will not personally be able to carry out his vows to kill more innocent men, women, and children. They are rejoicing at a movement towards justice for all those who have been affected by Al Qaeda's murderous attacks. They are not necessarily celebrating death, but rather they are celebrating the end of an era of a man's threats to kill them, which has been looming over them for the last 10 years.
