So no doubt by now everybody has heard the news. If not, please stop reading to go and visit pretty much any news source in the Western Hemisphere.
Osama Bin Laden is dead.
He died on May 1st, of an acute attack of SEAL Team Six to the face. He was given a burial at sea to prevent a grave site being used as a shrine for terrorists, and because his home country didn’t want the body back. And possibly because somebody wanted to make a “sleep with the fishes” joke.
Some people can try and twist these events to fit a political agenda. They might come up with arguments based on how our country proceeded with this particular subject or how all of the details were handled. They might try to turn this into a religious discussion.
I just want to say for the next few days at least, let it go. For right now just take it as this. A bad person did bad things to our country. And he paid for it.
Thank you to all the brave men and women who gave up all the wonderful things our society takes for granted, sacrificing years and sometimes their lives, limbs, and mental well being to bring us to this moment. They’ve given up so much for us, please don’t try to take anything else away by trying to make it into anything else.
Tomorrow we can go back to fighting tooth and nail over every detail of our lives.
