The capture and death of terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden on Sunday has captured the reactions of citizens across the country, including students and faculty from Cerritos College.

Frank Dussan, a student veteran majoring in criminal justice, said, “What we were doing in Afghanistan is finally going to be seen around the world.”

Administration of justice major Joshua Villalta believes that despite the death of Bin Laden, the war in Afghanistan is far from over.

“It would be pointless to say, ‘The war’s over’ because it’s not. We just took down one of the major powers and it’s going to continue,” Villalta said.

International Students Association Adviser Danita Kurtz sees this event as a method for Americans to emotionally recover from the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

“Hopefully, this can start curing the country and can help bring it to the point to where we can stop this war and move forward as a country,” Kurtz said.
