Everything can change in a minute

I woke up this morning and the world had changed.

I got my writing mojo back in a big way this weekend.  I spent the entire weekend tied to my computer and writing.  30K words later and a rough draft, front to back, I have a complete story etched out.  

Today I wasn't sure I would have too many words left when I sat down to write my posting, and  then I turned on the TV.

Osama Bin Laden is dead.  A man that has terrorized Americans prominently for the past ten years.  A man who hated everything American, for no other reason than we were American.  A man who claimed to be Muslim, even as he took the lives of innocent Muslims.  He is dead and I can feel nothing more than relief.

I would just like to say to the many courageous man and women who never gave up the hunt or the fight: Thank You.  Everyday you put on a uniform and stand a post and declare, no one is going to hurt you today, not on my watch.  And I think instead of rejoicing in the loss of life we should instead focus on the heroism that was displayed.

God Bless America!
