The witch is dead

Sing with me, "ding dong the witch is dead, the witch is dead, the witch is dead. Ding dong the wicked witch is dead..."

While Osama Bin Laden is not the same witch Dorothy had to contend with in the Wizard of Oz, I do feel a sense of freedom in knowing he has died.

I don't celebrate his death except I do feel happy he's no longer roaming this earth and adding to the amount of strife that already exists. I hope Al Queda is too unorganized to continue to be a real threat, but I fear it will only be a short time until it recoups and works at it's crazy goals.

What I do say is this.  Thank you to all the military personnel, in America and amongst our allies, including their families, for the sacrifices to bring this man and the rest of the terrorist organization to justice. Your sacrifices and your hardships are always in my heart and head and I will always be praying for you.  I am so proud of you, of us all, for our love and committment to our family and country.  It's not over but we can certainly feel good about the current win.

Okay, my husband has just said it best as to how I feel also, "I'm rejoicing at this one victory but with a heavy heart for all the loss of life and other sacrafices of soldiers, family, and friends at acheiving it."
Now, I know I've been silent, lots happening here and today's post was going to be about where I've meen and what I've been doing, however, to me, it was far more imporrtant to post about the most recent current event.

Until later, Beck

It is sad taht we have to be relieved at his death....never want to wish death on someone but when it comes to evil, it is hard.

My thoughts are with those who have passed on as the result of this man's views actions and theology. His death wont stop more of the same - there are too many others only too willing to step up and take his place.
