To become complacent at the news of Osama bin Laden's demise could bring grave consequences. I'm certain that there are many devotees who would love to move up the Al-Qaeda food chain, drooling at the chance of putting their imprint on the history of our country.
It's certainly acceptable for Americans to celebrate the death of bin Laden. Even more important is to stay vigilant against factions whose sole reason for living is to bring the United States to its knees.
