Do you feel safer a year after Osama bin Laden’s death?

You probably remember where you were when you heard the news that Osama bin Laden had been killed, but do you remember how you felt? As we approach the anniversary of the al-Qaeda leader’s death on May 2, 2011, it’s a good time for reflection.

[Opinion: How Osama bin Laden is winning, even in death]

As the Post’s David Ignatius writes, “It has been a comforting thought for Westerners to say that he failed. ... But in terms of bin Laden’s broader goal of moving the Islamic world away from Western influence, he has done better than we might like to think.”

In your mind, how different is the world — your world — without bin Laden? Has the world changed in the past year? Do you feel safer now than you did a year ago?
