    May 1st, 2011: In Our Nation's History

    Sunday, May 1, 2011

    Most of us remember where we were on 9/11. We know what we were doing, what we were eating, who we were talking to.

    Today, on May 1st, 2011, we will remember these same things.

    On the evening of May 1st, 2011, just months before the ten year anniversary of the destruction of the Twin Towers, President Obama gave America, as well as the rest of the world, news that we've long been waiting for.

    Osama Bin Laden is dead.

    This is a day of great rejoicing. It's a day that will hopefully, bring our troops, their families, and the families of the victims on 9/11, peace.

    Many may have mixed feelings on celebrating death. As a Christian, in my heart I know what I should ultimately do is forgive. Forgiving and forgetting, however, are two very hard things to do when linked to a person who so callously took the lives of thousands of men, women, and children.

    I'll work on it anyway.

    It may not be a popular sentiment, so I'll close by saying this. If the notion of celebrating death disturbs you so greatly, then celebrate life. Share the joy with your neighbor, your family, your friends. Democrat or Republican, this is a victory for us all.

    It's a victory for the world.

    May 1, 2011 will be remembered as the second day in our history when firefighters filled the streets of Time Square, citizens crowded the exterior of the White House singing "God Bless America", and we all wept as a Nation.

    Here is the difference: this time it is in relief and triumph.

    Political correctness be damned, because today we are all indeed One Nation Under God, with Liberty and Justice For All.

    Finally.
