You know have have to chime in on this.

Ok, so it’s already old news.

But, Osama Bin Laden was killed by elite American forces at his compound in Pakistan Sunday.

Yeah!

Although it saddens me that I find joy in the demise of anyone, some people just have to go.  And, frankly, I’m glad President Obama took a stand, took a risk, and took him out.

But, America has always had a bogey man.

As much as it thrilled me to see Americans in the streets shouting “USA, USA, USA” for something other than a ball game of the olympics, it worries me that we may falsly think we are safe.  So, America, who’s the next bogey man?  You know he’s out there, and we’re not safe yet.  There are nations and peoples who hate us for our freedom.  Our freedom and our freedoms remind them that they, by choice or by chance are not free. 

Be vigilant.
