Not because I’m happy. Not because I’m sad. Because now that Osama Bin Laden is dead I just want the wars to be over, the fighting to stop, and the killing to end.
Mostly, I’m remembering those feelings of terror I felt on that September Day. I wrote about it here. I can’t believe it has been nearly 10 years since this whole thing started. My daughter who was just a newborn is about to turn 10 years old.
I’m hoping there’s no retaliation.
I’m praying that our troops will remain safe overseas.
I’m hoping we don’t have endure another terrorist attack.
I’m hoping that this country will feel the same sense of unity we felt 10 years ago, like President Obama said Sunday night.
I don’t know exactly what emotion I’m feeling right now. Jubilation? Fear? Relief? All I know is that it’s bringing tears to my eyes. It’s been so long. It’s been so long.
God bless the whole world. No exceptions.
