No Closure for 9-11 Father

I'm writing a column about OBL, and yesterday afternoon I spoke with Peter Gadiel.

Peter's son, Jamie, died on 9-11. He worked on the 103rd floor of the North Tower.

Peter, a forthright man who believes our borders should be sealed, shared that he appreciates and understands the spontaneous outpouring of joy among his fellow Americans that the announcement of bin Laden's death has caused. But he won't be waving a flag or taking to the streets. Instead he states, "I'm glad to see justice done. But there's no closure for me. My son is not here. I don’t find much to celebrate."

He expanded upon those remarks in a column for CNN. In my opinion, he strikes the right tone.
