It's late here, but I couldn't resist writing a quick post expressing my feelings on this historic night.
I'm sure you've all heard by now that Osama Bin Laden has been confirmed dead. I've spent the last two hours on Twitter, just celebrating with my fellow writers. Not necessarily celebrating the death of a individual, but celebrating the symbolic victory for America and the entire world.
Do you remember the swell of patriotism and unity after 9-11? It's my deepest wish that everyone take this moment to recapture those feelings. I almost never talk politics on this blog, but I can't deny that the bickering and ugliness on BOTH sides has been making me crazy lately.
I hope, I wish, I pray that we will take this moment to come together.
To forget petty politics and policy quibbles, and celebrate the things that matter.
The country we love.
The freedom we enjoy.
The men and women that give their lives to make sure we have that freedom.
My heart is full tonight. God bless America.
