I woke up at 3AM for a middle of the night potty break and I noticed my phone was blinking with new messages. I did a quick scan of my email and noticed someone had forwarded me a CNN breaking news bulletin. I read it quickly and didn’t quite believe what I was reading.
Osama bin Laden is dead?
No way. The friend that forwarded this email…she forwards a lot of jokes. I scanned the entire email a bunch of times and it didn’t seem like a joke. But I still didn’t believe it. I checked another email and sure enough…the same information. He was dead.
I got out of bed and switched the TV from the infomercial that was providing J the background noise he needs to sleep to CNN.
I saw people dancing in the streets. People singing “God Bless America” at Ground Zero. The president making the announcement in a late night news conference.
We were finally able to rid the world of some evil.
It was very nice news to wake up to indeed.
John Stamos (of all people) tweeted the following quote this morning…
“I’ve never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure.” ~Mark Twain
I think that sums it up perfectly.
What do you all think?
