Justice Has Finally Been Done
And yet, I'm finding myself torn between cheers and tears after the President's announcement tonight that Bin Laden is dead, and we've got his body to prove it.
No more running. No more hiding. No one could deserve it more.
In NYC, I can hear people outside singing God Bless America as I type this, and news reports have shown huge crowds gathering down by Ground Zero, Times Square, and outside the White House well into the night. Too many years later, justice has been done.
As a person who's life was directly touched by 9/11 in more ways than I care to count, this news stirs up a host of emotions that I prefer to keep hidden. But my deepest gratitude goes out to our brave military for the sacrifices they make each and every day. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to anyone who experienced a tragic loss on that beautiful September morning. And my sincere prayers go out to whoever is listening that this marks the end of an unthinkable nighmare, not the beginning of a new one.
I know I don't generally blog about anything serious. Just had to say something here.
