“The death of Osama bin Laden sends an important message around the world - that no matter how long it takes, America’s resolve never wavers, America’s commitment to seeking justice is never-ending,” said Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice, which represents a New York City firefighter who survived the Sept. 11 attacks.

The end of bin Laden generates a common experience for Americans that some are comparing to the death of John F. Kennedy and the first manned moon landing.

Bin Laden’s death created a generational news moment,” said Ryan G. Murphy, digital media editor for the Radio Television Digital News Association.

“After a 10-year hunt for the man responsible for the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, U.S. forces killed Osama bin Laden in what may be considered one of the biggest news stories of this generation - which has, without question, created a ‘Where were you when?’ moment.”
