I realize that everyone will have different reactions to the death of Osama bin Laden. To some, it brings you peace and happiness and I rejoice for you. For others, we are currently surrounded by death and destruction and it’s hard to celebrate the death of one individual when we so desperately need help. I am happy for America and the world that an evil person is gone from this Earth. But we in Alabama and other states (MS, GA) who’ve been DEVASTATED by a natural disaster have quickly been forgotten. There are no links or coverage on major home page websites. Newspapers and TV outlets are focused on one man. Don’t let the evilness that was Osama bin Laden take away from what’s important. We cannot spend all of our time on him, when there are people here dying, missing, and have lost everything. I beg of you to continue to spread the world about this disaster. If you don’t understand its magnitude, look at pictures. Look at numbers. This disaster has been rated on the same level as Katrina. Does that put it in perspective for you? Help us.
