I live on a college campus, too. Much of the chanting and screaming I heard wasn't of the positive, "Go America!" variety. In other words, the impression I got was that we were celebrating a death, not celebrating our own unity, and that bothered me.
Fair enough. I will say that from what I heard here, it was mostly U-S-A chants, people singing the National Anthem, God Bless America, etc. There were obviously some exceptions, but not many. It felt good.
