:: today i couldn't be more proud to be an american
:: today it didn't "click" when i first heard the news.
:: today, on the way to work, it "clicked".
:: today i said an awkward prayer, not knowing if it was ok to thank Him for taking a life
:: today i thought of all the lives lost because of the evil and wondered what He thinks of it
:: today a twelve-old told me it was 'not cool' that everyone was celebrating a death
:: today i agreed with him and was glad that we had a moment chatting about why it felt good, even though it shouldn't.
:: today i am so thankful for the courageous military that made this justice possible.
:: today i am even more thankful that no american or innocent citizen lives were lost.
:: today i hope that families and loved ones of the lost are able to shed one more tear, this time laced with just a tiny bit of closure.
:: today was full of mixed emotions...but ultimately, relief.
God bless the U.S.A.
