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.
