We all remember where we were and what we were doing when we heard the confusing and awful news about a plane flying into the World Trade Tower. What a terrible thing to happen. But it only got worse when the second place hit the other Tower and we began to release that we were under attack.
How could this be? This is a America. How did people hijack these planes? How could 3,000 people be killed and the country thrown into mayhem? Who was this man who hated us so much that he would kill innocent people with impunity?
We began to learn about this Osama bin Laden. And the more we learned, the scarier he became. It seemed that we would never be able to find him and stop his murderous rampage against the West. And then last night we heard the news that he had been killed. It still doesn’t seem real. He seemed to be a larger than life figure, but in the end he was only a man, no doubt an evil man who would stop at nothing to achieve his aims.
I guess I am glad it is over. But is it really over? Osama bin Laden was only one of many men who are hell-bent on destroying the United States and the West. There are other evil men of his ilk who are still plotting against the West and will try even harder to destroy our way to life.
Osama bin Laden is dead but his memory and legacy lingers.
