The world rejoiced when Obama announced that Osama Bin Laden had died.People everywhere stopped what they were doing to watch Obama report that a group of U.S. Navy SEALS invaded Bin Laden’s hide out and killed him.

Commuters stopped in their tracks on their way to work to watch the news in Japan, people celebrated on the White House lawn, and some held a candle light vigil in remembrance of the 9/11 victims at Ground Zero.
