How to absorb all of this? Post it on Facebook, of course: "Really overwhelmed being at a War of American Aggression museum in Vietnam when the news about Osama bin Laden came through."As Monday, May 2, dawned and the story spun out, the reactions of young people continued to pour in. A nephew living in the heartland was less inclined toward contemplation, and joined in with the chants of USA-USA-USA that many of us saw on the television. One friend posted a request for Osama bin Laden dolls so he could barbecue them. That elicited a post vowing to burn anyone who manufactured such dolls.If you watched the revelry after President Barack Obama's announcement that bin Laden was gone, you couldn't help but notice the youth of the revelers. Their generation watched the horror of Sept. 11 with one eye on the television and another on their parents, searching for reassurance that everything was going to be OK. For some, they didn't get the sense, until this week, that the grownups could take care of things.
