The Day Osama Bin Laden Fell Into The Ocean
For the last ten years, Osama Bin Laden has wreaked havoc on our nation. His part in the destruction of the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, not to mention Flight 93, left us all bitter for blood. Our nation went to war and hundreds of American troops have perished due to a senseless war.
We would like to think that it is over. We would like to think that our nation, The United States Of America, has indeed won. We all feel lighter right now, and that is fine.
A lot of Americans are upset because the body was dumped so quickly. Many of us have questions and doubts. Was it really Osama Bin Laden that was cast into the sea? Isn't being buried at sea a privilege?
We have been told that this was to prevent a lack of riots and desecration of a burial site, as well as denying a temple for those who support Osama Bin Laden to mourn and pay respect.
Whatever the case may be, Osama Bin Laden is dead. Of course there will be another tyrant to dance in his place. But until that moment comes, let us all relish in victory. Let us all be a little nicer to each other like we were back in 2001.
It seems to always take a national tragedy or a military victory to bring us Americans together. Instead, let's respect each other as Americans...always.
It is our resilience as a nation that angers other countries. It is our cockiness, our flamboyancy and our "never give up" attitude that seems to get under their skin.
That's okay. We were a nation born out of war and fight for our rights and the rights of those who cannot fight for themselves vehemently.
So America, wave your flag, play your National Anthem and hold your head up high. The U.S. Military has made the world a little safer, if only for a little while.
