When we went to war part of me hoped it would be fast, like the war when my oldest was born. I hoped they would all surrender when we went over like last time.
Almost ten years later I woke up and logged onto Facebook. I see a picture of the Statue of Liberty holding Osama Bin Laden's head, then I saw a post about "Osama's last words"...
No... really? NO FUCKING WAY!!!! I quickly Googled Osama Bin Laden looking for the news, and I found it. I woke up the oldest, "HEY! Osama Bin Laden is dead!"
"No shit! We killed him!"
While I rejoice at that (and I use the term lightly) man's death, I worry for my husband deployed in Afghanistan. I worry for everyone over there because I know retaliation will come.
But I push that worry aside when I watch the news and see everyone back home in the States crowding in front of the White House and at Ground Zero cheering and chanting USA! USA! USA! I am not even joking, it brings tears to my eyes to see the patriotism that America displayed after the attacks.
To the people that are angry that Obama was in office when it happened, get over yourselves. To the people getting angry because Obama is taking credit for this, fuck off... he can take credit, he gave the directive, he is our nations leader whether you like it or not. To our President, the troops, the Navy SEALS that put that bullet in that tall freaks head: thank you so much, and God bless you!
