I went to sleep last night oblivious to this news since I was wrapped up in the Deadliest Catch marathon on Discovery. This morning after I finished my workout and switched on the news, there it was. "Osama Bin Laden Dead." I felt a fleeting moment of elation and then disbelief set in. That's still where I am right now. I just do not believe that he is dead. The thought that this is a political ploy to help secure re-election has crossed my mind. But, I sincerely hope that Obama is not that devious or calculating to perpetrate such a fraud simply to be re-elected.
We've accomplished something that didn't seem possible. I want to believe it. I really do. Mission accomplished? Can we bring our soldiers home now?
