Bin Laden's Death, One Year Later

One year ago, Wantagh and Seaford felt joyful and uneasy after a daring military raid took out the terror leader. How do you feel now?

Tuesday marks 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, had mixed emotions about the world's most wanted man being taken out. 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?

Weigh in with your comments.

I do not feel that Osama Bin Laden's image is deserving to grace the pages of your publication. He is gone from the face of the earth. Mission accomplished. Let's move on.
