Osama Bin Laden is Dead

We all remember this: A day of pain that will forever be in our minds.

A day that everyone wept for those lost and those who surived who would never be the same.
There were a total of 2,996 deaths, including the 19 hijackers and 2,977 victims. The victims were distributed as follows: 246 on the four planes (from which there were no survivors), 2,606 in New York City in the towers and on the ground, and 125 at the Pentagon. All the deaths in the attacks were civilians except for 55 military personnel killed in the attack on the Pentagon.
Since 9/11 there have been thousands of deaths of our military men and women all because of the damning acts of one man and the men following him.

Even though we as a nation were gravely wounded we have never faltered. Even in the direct aftermath of 9/11 we were strong.
For 10 years we have fought and died for those that died in that horrible day. 
Now that Bin Laden is dead I have hope that we will be able to have our men and women overseas to come home.
If there is anything in Bin Laden's death for others to take away from this I think it would be.
Don't mess with the U.S. Because we will find you and you will pay.
