Joy Tinged With Sadness

Yesterday, with the news of bin Laden’s demise, I couldn’t help but remember those who were lost at his hands. True, he was responsible for the deaths of thousands of people worldwide, even those of his own race and creed, but my thoughts centered on those killed on 9/11/2001.

Roswell Patch contacted me about the Michael Gann tribute I’d written in 2009 as part of the 2996 Project. Christine Foster’s article is a sweet remembrance.

If even for a short while, again, we have that 9/12 mindset. Neither conservative or liberal, Democrat or Republican, we are Americans first. We embrace those who lost loved ones to terrorist attacks, as a loving mother cuddles and reassures an injured child. After all, we all lost that day.

Justice has been served. God Bless America.
