Over the weekend, American forces acquired intel that Osama Bin Laden was hiding out in Pakistan. They sent in a CIA team and a SEAL team and took him out. It's being reported that intel was acquired through tips from Gitmo. God bless our troops who keep us safe and who are able to carry out a mission like this. Also, God bless the victims from 9/11. We know that we can never ease your pain, but hopefully this monster's death provides some small measure of comfort.
I explained, a bit, to Stomp about what was going on. I kept it in simple, 7-year-old terms and we said an extra prayer for our troops and our leaders. He doesn't understand really, of course (for instance, he asked if Bin Laden would come back as a zombie and "is he as big as Devastator?"), but I felt it was important to share this day with him.
I've kept politics off this blog, largely, and I'm not going to get into it now. It doesn't matter who did what or who believes what. It just matters that a great threat to the American and Christian way of life has been eliminated. GOD BLESS THE U.S.A.
