God Bless America

I had a post that I wanted to write - all about the Royal Wedding...but now - it just seems so frivolous.

So instead -  God Bless America. I am not one to rejoice in someone elses death, but I am one to rejoice that someone who caused terror in Americans lives and lives abroad was brought down.

As former President Bush said, "Earlier this evening, President Obama called to inform me that American forces killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of the al-Qaida network that attacked America on September 11, 2001. I congratulated him and the men and women of our military and intelligence communities who devoted their lives to this mission. They have our everlasting gratitude. This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done."

Thank you to our military for keeping us safe.

I often think reverently of the many good men who have sacrificed so much for our freedom and country. God Bless America, and Americans; amen!

PS Such tragic memories today... praying for those most affected by 9-11, of any nationality or region.
