Is it immoral to celebrate a person’s death?

What I told my nephew in answer to his question.

Will, don’t ever Google-Image Benito Mussolini’s remains. Talk about a celebration. I agree that death shouldn’t be celebrated, but only because collective life well lived would never make it necessary to hunt down and kill an individual. While it’snot my fault specifically that Osama bin Laden made the choices he did, it’s on mankind in general, and espcially everybody who believes they haven’t done enough to prevent war. I take respsonsibility for the hit, and I say that with no disrespect to the Navy SEALS. It is what it is. I never did anything to prevent the events that led up to it. That’s why I want to see the photos. I want to loook at his ruined head and tell God I’m sorry.
