Death Comes

As we listened to the President address the nation tonight, we cried. The horror of September 11th was enormous and life changing.

There has been so much death and destruction since then; loss and pain; so many wrong moves with dire consequences and long lasting repercussions.

We do not yet know the ripples from this moment. But I have no problem with the killing of Osama bin Laden.

We are grateful to President Barack Obama; grateful to all who serve and have served in our military and to the intelligence services personnel around the world.

May we all, some day, know peace...

I heartily agree. There has been so much talk on our radio today about how he should have been buried according to his religion....I could not believe about all the people who died on 9/11, what about their rights. I applaude your forces for their bravery.

Jon Stewart's discussion of this was fantastic. Worth watching if you can grab it.

Thank you Fiona for your thoughtful comment. We too are grateful for the bravery of the Navy Seals.

Thank you Kate for the recommendation. We hadn't seen it, but we were able to watch it online.
