Osama bin Laden is Dead

Osama bin Laden is dead. Almost a decade after 9/11, the families who lost a loved one that day finally know that the mastermind who planned the attacks is no longer alive.

Kudos to the Navy Seals and other special ops military that carried off this mission to find Osama bin Laden. What a brave feat.

This year the anniversary of 9/11 will have a very different feel. It was always eerie to know that Osama bin Laden was alive out there somewhere eluding capture.

Nothing can bring back the victims of 9/11. Our country and the world will always mourn their loss. People in my town were killed in NYC that day. In this area, most towns lost people on 9/11. Each town has a memorial to them.

Here the memorial is next to the beach. It is a quiet place. There are benches, flowers, and an American flag. Walking on the boardwalk next to the memorial or riding by on a bike is a constant reminder of the lives lost on 9/11.

RIP to the people who died on 9/11. President Obama has fulfilled the mission to find Osama bin Laden. Finally, finally justice has arrived.
