It seems a lifetime ago. In fact, it has been for my youngest child. I'll never forget the moment I heard that our country had been attacked. It was surreal. Watching the dreadful, horrifying videos replayed throughout the day. The confusion, the anguish, the danger, the sacrifice, the fear, the heroism. I remember the upsurge in patriotism. I was proud of that. Then, it seemed as time went on, many in our country almost seemed to turn our backs on our soldiers. I was ashamed of that.
So now, we receive news that Osama bin Laden has been killed and buried at sea. After such a long wait, it went so quickly. Forty minutes. Forty minutes. Now he will face an eternity in a hell far worse than the one he was responsible for creating. I find myself with mixed emotions. I do not, however, believe that it's over. He was one man. He preached his doctrine of terror to many. He left a legacy.
One man...one woman...what kind of legacy will you and I leave?
