A Weekend for the History Books

What a weekend this has turne out to be. For the rest of our lives we will all remember where we were May 1, 2001.

This weekend kicked off with the royal wedding and was ended by the announcement of the death of Osama Bin Laden.

Before I continue with my post I'm going to get a little political. It was funny/sad to see how people jumped down each other's throats via Facebook and twitter. Isn't one of the great freedoms of America being that we are able to have our own opinions and voice them. It's just sad when people jump down friends throats when your political viewpoints don't agree. That's the great thing about living in a free country. We don't have to agree!

I personally would have also liked to see Bush speak. Maybe not last night but eventually. An of course supposedly that means I'm a Obama hater. Whatever.
My reason being is that this whole thing started with Bush. It may have ended with Obama but it had to start somewhere. Each president played their own role in the capturing and death of Osama and each deserve their credit. I do find it funny that people hate Bush for getting us in this war, but will now love the Obama administration for his death. But like I said each deserves their due credit. For finally it's finished. Ok enough on that. That's my own personal opinion. It's my personal blog so if you don't agree I'm sorry. But also keep your political opinions to yourself. That is your right to disagree with me.

However while I believe both presidents deserve some credit, all the credit, respect and support should go to our troops. They have been the ones from day one who have left their families and friends to put their lives on the line. Yes justice was served. Thanks to our many men and women serving our country.

We also need to remember the 3000 people who lost their lives during 9/11. May prayers go out to their families. Not to mention the countless soldiers who paid the ultimate price during this fight on terror. They should be the ones who get all the credit.

It is for their sacrifice that justice is now served

And while the death of Osama means great triumph for America this is not the end. I am afraid to think about what this really means for us. I heard on one news report that Pakistan did not help in the death of Osama and that Obama will now consider them enemies. Will they retaliate against us. Will al queda also retaliate? whether to our troops overseas or even here in America. Will this mean the beginning of the end of the war on terror or will it mean more troops being sent overseas?

I pray that there is no retaliation especially to our soldiers deployed and here at home. I shutter to think about another terrorist attack.

And to end with what Obama said last night. Let's all remember how we felt on 9/11. Neighbor helping neighbor, joining and uniting together.

I believe that right now, personal opinions on politics aside, that everyone needs to stand up and join together as a country united and celebrate Osamas death, kiss a soldier for their service and pray for no retaliation

God Bless America

  1. I do worry this is going to create some sort of retaliation with Osama's minions. All in all, I thank the troops for doing what they do best. Protect our country for our freedom!

  2. AMEN! My sentiments exactly...couldn't have said it better myself though! The troops are really the ones to thank and Obama is just happens to be in office when it gets done. I agree, I don't think this is the fact, I'm a little nervous about what this might mean for us now. It's sad that all this time and effort has been put forth for justice, but it won't result in our troops coming home because the battle is only half over. We all must continue to be vigilant and pray for our troops and our nation! God bless America and God bless our Troops!

  3. Very well said, I couldn't agree more.

  4. I agree completely. I'm nervous about what is to come now but all we can do is pray and trust that the Lord will protect us/our military.
