Last night, history was made. President Barack Obama announced that public enemy number one, terrorist and murderer Osama Bin Laden, has been killed in Pakistan.
Impromptu celebrations broke out around the country and are continuing today at venues like Ground Zero.
On September 11, 2001, my boyfriend – now husband – woke me from a deep sleep to make me watch the news. I woke from a dream to witness the beginning of a national nightmare. Last night I was sleeping off jetlag from yet another trip, and woke up to discover that all of these years later, what seemed so elusive and impossible, has happened.
I’m just trying to absorb that THIS HAPPENED. It feels very surreal right now.
I don’t know about you but my Facebook and Twitter timelines are off the chain right now. I’m seeing messages of celebration, patriotism and pride. And I’m also seeing messages of doubt, cynicism, and impending doom.
I read a quote on Twitter last night that spoke to me.
“I’ve never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure.” Mark Twain
