One Year Anniversary of Bin Laden’s Death

Last year the country felt joyful and uneasy after daring military raid took out the terror leader. How do you feel now?

Tuesday marked the first anniversary of the death of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

The man who was responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks that the destroyed the World Trade Center was killed by Navy SEALS in Pakistan.

At the time,  that the world's most wanted man had been taken out, but there was also much apprehension over what would come next.

Even a year later, there is still some concern. Last week, the Department of Homeland Security released a bulletin warning of possible terror attacks on the anniversary.

Rep. Peter King, R-Seaford. told CBS, "There is chatter or talk among various terrorists, various Al-Qaeda supporters, about avenging the death of bin Laden. Basically with the first anniversary coming up, this is a warning, advisory to all Americans for keeping their eyes and ears out and also I would say to anyone in airlines, rail, anyone at all, to be extra cautious, extra careful.”

We'd like to know how safe you feel? Are you still as concerned about terrorism?  If so, how much? If not, why?

One year after Bin Laden’s death and over 10 years since 9/11, American citizens are still blindly allowing their civil liberties to be taken away one piece of legislation at a time. How much freedom are we willing to sacrifice to feel safe? Under the guise of fighting terrorism, the Patriot Act was adopted WITHOUT public approval or vote just weeks after the twin towers fell. These laws are simply a means to spy on our own citizens and to detain and torture dissidents without trial or a right to council. You can read much more about living in this Orwellian society of fear and see my visual response to these measures on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/09/living-in-society-of-fear-ten-years.html
