Osama Bin Laden has been killed

I can never say I'm happy for someone to die, but I can say I am not sad.  This man hated me and he never knew me.  He hated me and all Americans because we were Americans.  I was in NYC and visited the Statue of Liberty and had pictures taken in front of the World Trade Towers on Labor Day weekend 2001.  My husband worked at the Pentagon every Monday on every week of 2001.  I thanked God this tragedy happened on a Tuesday. When the hateful act of terrorism occurred on September 11, 2001 my country was attacked.  I can say, tonight I will sleep soundly knowing a true enemy of my country is dead.  It's funny, I was wondering, just this past Friday, if Osama Bin Laden was still alive.  Now I know, this enemy is dead.  I thank God for the special operations individuals who carried out this mission.  I thank God for this administration keeping the vigil and carrying through on this mission.  I will not celebrate, but I will pray for each and every victim of the tragedy of September 11, 2001.  Justice is served.

  3. Such a relief that he is gone. That day was such agony for me as I tried to get in touch with my family there - my poor niece was escorted from her office by a SWAT officer clearing government buildings. She didn't even know what had happened yet, but was in a building right behind the White House and had to walk home for miles because they closed the transit system. A truly terrifying day.

  5. My mom had to remind me my husband's 8 a.m. meeting at the Pentagon was on Monday's, not Tuesday's. No cell service, I couldn't reach him. I was scared. A truly terrifying day.

  6. I am not trying to be negative, but for every action there is a reaction. I'm praying hard for our safety.

    I also am saying prayers, not just for the families affected, but to pray that there are not horrible ramifications from this.
    Thank you for your words.

  10. Yes Georgia, You are right. We must never forget the 7/7 attack on the UK in London. We must never forget the USS Cole. The Beirut bombing. And a list longer than most can even imagine. We must NEVER forget.
