The media has gone into a frenzy. The world is in absolute celebration mode. Americans tonight, are rejoicing and some are in tears. But tonight- will be one more night in our nation’s history that will forever be on the minds of those who lived it.

This day has been coming: 9 years, 7 months, and 20 days. It most certainly has been a day that many Americans have been dreaming of. Praying for, and hoping without end.

The mastermind behind the attacks of 9/11, is dead.

At 9:52 PM CDT, I received a telephone call from a neighbor. She told me that Bin Laden was dead. I was thrown back in my wheelchair… stunned and filled with overwhelming excitement.

I turned on the television, knowing that it did not matter what channel or network I wanted, if this was really happening, then it would be on everything!!

I was right. Everything was interrupted to share through the media that this had happened. Naturally, like millions or perhaps billions across the world, were waiting for this to be confirmed.

At approximately 10:35 PM CDT, President Obama spoke to the nation, telling us that Bin Laden had been killed by United States military forces. I am sure for countless others just like myself, it was all I needed.

I am sure that blogs are on fire about this topic, and will be for many days to come. I am just one of the many who decided to write about it. Television and radio, the Internet and so many other websites will be flooded with these messages from many American citizens of their unrestrained jubilation over this event.

For many Americans, especially those of us who lived through 9/11, the population had added the question of, “Where were you on September 11th?”. Now, there is a new question. “Where were you on the first of May when it was announced that Bin Laden had been killed?”. Most certainly it will be a question that will be of better cheer than the previous.

It does not matter what side of the American political spectrum you base your beliefs upon. What matters now is that all Americans are united once more in gratitude that the evil man who slaughtered thousands of innocent men, women, and children can personally do the world no more harm.

I will always remember those who suffered on 9/11. And I will always remember this day. A date that be looked upon as a great and glorious victory for our men and women who are serving in our military and who have served since that time in September of 2001. (Which includes my very own younger brother. I love you bro, thanks for everything you’ve done!)

I will always give thanks for those who sacrificed their own lives, so that the rest of the nation, the rest of the world, can be able to witness the downfall of an evil lunatic with nothing but blood on his hands and murder in mind.

LET FREEDOM RING!!

God bless this world, and GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!
