When the ladies of “The View” were discussing the death of Osama bin Laden yesterday, Hasselbeck expressed concerns over what she’d tell her young children about the terrorist’s death — a concern I’d say most parents share. Hasselbeck shared what happened when she picked up a pen and let the feelings flow:

“Osama Bin Laden was a very bad guy/
He hurt many people, don't ask me why/
We shot him in the head and now he is dead/
Now close your eyes and go to bed.”

Not bad, right? Maybe Hasselbeck could release an entire collection of poems that explain controversial events to children.
