Osama bin Laden is dead

Islamabad, Pakistan

Osama bin Laden’s death at the hands of U.S. Navy Seals in a mansion in Abbottabad, Pakistan, which President Obama¬†announced late Sunday on live TV, is not the usual type of news delivered on this local site. But, one of my Facebook readers reminded me it does belong on BANV. We were all greatly affected by the events bin Laden put into action and many local families have members who have spent the past decade fighting overseas as a result of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Tonight, as cheering crowds of thousands gather outside the White House gates and at Ground Zero in New York, we say thank you for all you did to bring us to this point. Please feel free to share what this means to you in the comments below.
