OSAMA BIN LADEN IS DEAD!

I haven't posted in a really long time, but this is a very special occasion, I guess.

Yes, I have just watched the live streaming of Obama's statement. Quoting the U.S. President:
The United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama Bin Laden, leader of the Al-Qaeda.


As millions of people around the globe, I'm thrilled and relieved and scared all at once. It's been almost 10 years since 9/11. And then, I remembered Joe.

Five years ago I decided to take part in this chain of memorials for 9/11 victims. Each blogger would write about a 9/11 victim.
"My guy" was Joe, and for about a month I got to know him, and even managed to get in touch with friends of his to write the memorial. Here's the link to it.

Today is a great day. I know this will not bring all those people back, but as U.S. President Obama said, "Justice has been done". I guess lots of moms who lost their children will sleep better tonight.

To Joe Anchundia, Judd Cavalier and all other 9/11 victims' families - justice has been done.

Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that"

    Yet I do understand your point!
