As a Nation, We should Pat Ourselves on the Back (even if *some* of us went to bed early last night)

Apparently a lot can happen after you fall asleep at 8:30...

It is a truly happy occasion for all Americans, that we can sleep more peacefully in the knowledge that such a horrible person is no longer with us.

Bin Laden was killed in a firefight yesterday with American special forces.  There were no American casualties.  Osama Bin Laden was "the face of global terrorism and architect of the Sept. 11, 2001" (Dozier and Espo, Associated Press).  Read more about the events that occurred yesterday here.

Many people were affected personally by the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center, and, as a New Yorker, I do not know anyone who was not directly influenced by the horrific events.  Though we will never forget what happened on that fateful day in 2001, a chapter has now been closed with the news of Bin Laden's death.

This is not a day to divide ourselves with politics, to remember the missteps that the United States has made along the way, to place blame or congratulate figureheads who, suffice it to say, didn't have much to do with it at all; rather it is a day for all of us to be united, that a goal has been accomplished, and that, ultimately, one of America's foremost convictions has finally been realized.

Thank you to the service men and women who made this possible, and God bless America!

  1. I so agree this is not about politics etc that you mentioned. We have all had our own reactions and yet the one thing in common is you really can not find someone who has not had a reaction or opinion. I hope you will check out mine.

  2. For all the partisan reactions I've been subjected to this week, yours is refreshingly balanced and grounded. You are truly a wise woman. By the way, congratulations!
