Death of Terror
While every blog across the Internet is writing about Osama Bin Laden’s demise and the lack of definitive proof from the White House, I am wondering what is going to happen next. Yes, I am concerned about the possibility of retaliation from his supporters; however, I am far more concerned with threats closer to home. Whenever something as large as the death of the elusive Bin Laden occurs, there is a whole host of wannabe criminals waiting in the wings to take advantage of the chaos to commit random acts of violence. For the wannabe terrorist, is there any time better than now to get a piece of the limelight? Practically, the who country is celebrating the death of the face of terror and bracing for an attack from afar when, really, the next attack could come from down the street or around the corner. My concern is that we do not rest on our laurels, but, keep an even keener eye open for odd behaviors and be ever more vigilant about being aware of our surroundings.
