Osama is dead.

So says the news reports.

I don't know how to view this news. Should I be happy or sad? Or what?

The strange thing is that, far from living a life of austerity in a mountain cave, it seems he was living the type of life his wealthy family had always lived. In a luxury villa, whilst surrounded by some of the world's most awful examples of genuine, heart-breaking poverty, disease and ignorance.

Is it a pity that the vast wealth he had amassed was not used to help alleviate the suffering of some of the poorest, most destitute followers of Islam?

Health care, education, employment opportunities, there is so much that could have been done, which was not even begun, let alone finished.
