DARIEN - A southwestern Connecticut psychoanalyst says the killing of Osama bin Laden is stirring many mixed emotions, especially for those who lost a loved one on Sept. 11.

Maud Purcell, of Darien, says the news last night brought back memories of the attacks in New York for people directly affected, as well as those who just saw it on the news.

Purcell says for those who lost a family member or friend, the impact may not hit right away, since the death of the man who orchestrated the attacks can't bring back those who have died.

She says bin Laden's death will also have a positive effect on people of Middle Eastern descent living in the United States, because many felt targeted for being from the same area in the world.
