Celebrating the 4th of July with Osama bin Laden

It’s been a little over two months since President Obama delivered the news that bin Laden had been killed. Thinking about Osama bin Laden may seem like an unusual way to spend the 4th of July. But that’s what I did. In the midst of cook outs, swimming under a hot sun, and watching the night sky ablaze with color, I reflected back on all that has happened since we got the news that bin Laden was dead. And wondered what it was we were celebrating.
