Some people just don’t get it

I sit here watching CNN and the headline reads OSAMA BIN LADEN IS DEAD. I don’t want to celebrate the death of another human being, but just thinking about the people who have died because of his orders  and the enormity/significance of this announcement is just…….WHOA

Yes, people we know there is still work to be done….

Yes, we know the war is not over….

BUT how about you stop with your comments. Its rude and disrespectful to those people who lost their lives during the 9/11 attacks.  Allow those husbands, wives, sons, daughters, mothers and fathers this one moment before you start telling them that there will be retaliation and there is someone else waiting in the wings.

As the wife of a soldier who has been deployed 3 times and as the sister of a soldier who has been deployed once and is preparing to leave again in less than 90 days…. if you’ve NEVER waited by the phone, watched CNN constantly, explained to your children why Daddy is not home… please just for once in your life be silent.

To the members of the military I salute you.  President Obama I salute you. Thank you for your efforts.
