Osama Bin Laden Death Reflection
Another Big Story
All last week leading up to Friday, one of the biggest news stories was the Royal Wedding. What they were wearing? What were guests eating? Who was invited? I have to admit I was glad when Friday came, because after two and a half months of the royal wedding news blitz, I quite honestly had had enough.
Less than two days later the major news story is the death of Osama Bin Laden. President Obama stunned the world with last night's announcement. Suddenly, the Royal Wedding seems so long ago, and forgive me, but a bit trite. As I reflect on September 11th, I cannot help but to relive the anguish and pain suffered by our great nation. I remain mystified as to what makes people hate so hard that they destroy innocent people.
But during my mournful mood and reflection of evil, I suddenly remember why we need diversions like the Royal Wedding. Because in the middle of life's pain and sorrow, it's soothing to reflect on symbols of hope, joy. and love.
