"While Osama bin Laden may be dead, it won't bring my dearest friend, Stephanie Greene, back."

M'Buti Moore has mixed feelings about the killing of the leader of the Al Quaeda terrorist network.

I don't know what to think ...

I mean, they should have captured Osama bin Laden long ago, right after September 11, 2001 occurred.  Why did they wait so long to find him??

While I am glad that he is gone, what's to say that more terrorists from this operation won't retaliate and get us again?  To me, that is just inviting another attack ...

When I heard the news the day before yesterday and saw the people celebrating/dancing in the streets in New York City and Washington, D.C., I had a sick feeling deep in the pit of my stomach.  I mean, after all, weren't those who supported Osama bin Laden doing the same thing when the terrorists struck?  

I fear for our nation now more than ever because you never know.  It could happen again, and the next time it may be much worse.  

While Osama bin Laden may be dead, it won't bring my dearest friend, Stephanie Greene, back.  When she died (along with all the others) back on that fateful day, I think a part of me died, too, right along with her.  I still have ongoing nightmares about it.  The images have remained in my mind's eye; I don't sleep well at night because I replay the attack over and over, in my mind.  I have PTSD as a direct result of it, and September 11, 2001 is something I really don't like to talk about.

To me, it hit too close to home.  It took away my best friend, and I still grieve in my own way.  I guess that is one reason why I throw myself into my family duties (as well as my job) so much.  It makes me forget.  And forgetting is something I would rather do than to deal with the horrifying memory/images all over again.

My children all had questions when they saw the news.  Roberto had to explain about what happened in a way they could understand, and they also wondered why mommy (me) cried so much when she saw the television.  I really doubt that most of the children really and truly understand that magnitude of the event; they're just innocent little creatures who don't deserve to see such horror displayed in front of their eyes.

I really don't understand about what is going to happen in the future, but I do know this: I fear for our nation's safety once again, and I am forced to face the painful memories.  God help us all, is all I can say!

~M'Buti.  :( 

+Never forget!  I won't forget.  I CAN'T forget!+

Happy that he is gone, waiting to see what happens next, who will step into Osama bin Laden's shoes to attack ... scary times. Well done, Karen.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

I believe our greatest mistake, but I and many others are extremely glad that our current President finally got the job done.
