    Ground Zero Celebration After Osama Bin Laden News


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     zackmctee is a filmmaker living in New York City. When he heard the news of Osama bin Laden's death, he waited for President Obama's speech before heading to Ground Zero, which is about a five-minute bike ride from his home. 'I wanted to go experience the event myself,' zackmctee said. 'I was just overwhelmed with emotion with what was going on. I wanted to document it with my camera, but I made sure to turn my camera off so I could experience what was going on.' He said that he went to Ground Zero to celebrate the fact that bin Laden is no longer a threat. zackmctee said it's justice that's being celebrated, not the death of bin Laden, which is something he believes many are struggling with.
