God Bless The USA
The US has the body. Usama bin Laden resides with Hitler.
He has been our enemy since the first failed attempt on the World Trade Center. My husband was at meetings in NYC the day before. Gerry was also in the city on the failed attempt- which we recall was stopped only because the would-be bomber got lost and made a cell phone call- which was intercepted.
September 11.2001- Gerry was home. I remember everything about that day. Including calling my mother- at the height of her dementia, she translated the story to the caretakers that Gerry had been taken hostage and escaped.):-
We are coming up on the anniversary of my mother's death. Tonight I wished I could call her. The mind is a wondrous thing; as her body failed, her mind came back. If we could have talked tonight - the former Navy Wave would be pleased that the nation stayed the course in eradicating the evil that, by any spelling Osama/Usama was.
I am cautious about the days ahead. This is an important benchmark. It is, however, not the end of an era. Others who wreck terror still operate against us. In the months and days ahead, may God bless this nation and watch especially over those who serve us in the military.
