What does a blogger do after Osama has been shot in the head? What is one to do?
It's funny, most of the "personal" bloggers I read didn't even say much. What is there to say?
I only have one really strong opinion on the subject and it's a little meta, so bear with me.
Everyone shut up. Everyone.
See? Yay life philosophies!
Really what I mean is, it bothers me that some are telling others how to feel. Sure, seeing people cheering, with signs and clapping - yeah, that's totally weird and makes me feel weird - but I'm sure as hell not going to look down on that person, my god.
I also don't want to see that Mark Twain quote again from anyone, stop telling me how to feel about this. I think that's great that you don't believe in celebrating someone's death, totally, that seems to be a more peaceful feeling - but don't tell me to feel like that.
I feel everything above, there's a part of me that feels ultra-patriotic, that wants to run through the streets with a sign that says "America will kick your fucking ass you goddamn fucking murderer" and there's a part of me that is humbled and saddened that the military had to walk in a shoot a man in the head. My god.
It's a reaction to death, and we all know that everyone reacts in their own way, so can't we just let each other do that? I want to know how you feel, but please oh god, don't tell me how I should feel.
Anyway, I'm only going to whisper it, but (Obama is a badass mutha y'all).
Okay, no more soapbox.
I gotta go to work.
