May Day 2011: Osama Bin Laden is Dead. Where were you?
Where were you when you heard that Osama Bin Laden was dead? I was sitting in my TV room next to my husband. We were watching Iron Man 2. My brother texted the news and we immediately flipped on the news channels.
The news media has been frustrating for a long time now. We kept flipping through the channels because most of them didn’t even have all the facts and they were trying to report on something they knew nothing about.
Whatever happened to keeping your YAP shut until you have confirmation of the facts? Trying to make guesses as to what happened so you can remain cutting edge makes you look really dumb.
We finally settled on watching ABC.
All I could think of was WOW. This calls for some extra celebrating! We had just spent the day with family to honor my nephew's first holy communion. It made me think of the day Saddam Hussein was captured. That was the same day my middle child was born.
You have to know this is not over. They will attempt to retaliate. This is how terrorists operate. We need to stay alert.
Obama did a GOOD job with his statement. He needed to get that sucker right and he did. My husband saw his girls peaking around the corner as he was walking to the podium at the White House. I thought that was cute.
It’s good to know that everyone connected to 9/11 has been vindicated and justice has been served.
I wish I could be at the White House or NYC Times Square celebrating!!! USA!!! USA!!! USA!!! Kudos to our military!!! Props to Obama!!! Hat Tip to George W. Bush!!! We will never ever forget 9/11!!!
I must tell you that the conspiracy theories floating around out there on the internet and in social networking media is ridiculous. I cannot believe how easily distracted people are. I am really beginning to loath the hard fringe LEFT and the hard fringe RIGHT. People who are easily fooled by these distractions I have no time for.
You need to start thinking for yourself and CUT the CRAP.
Our Armed Forces are our heroes!!! They have sacrificed and put everything on the line to get the job done!!! George W. Bush AND Barack Obama get the credit AND a JOB WELL DONE. Yes!!! Whether you love them or hate them they BOTH get the credit. It’s pretty obvious to me that they are communicating with one another in spite of their difference so what does THAT tell you?
Really everyone...we don’t have time for this partisan nonsense. Every time you see someone saying something over the top change the channel. You need to look at the news objectively and ask yourselves, “are they reporting the facts or are they full of it?” Try not to shoot from the hip until you have a chance to really think about what’s going on without getting your cues from commentators OR reporters who haven’t bothered to obtain all of the facts. If they can’t admit they don’t have all the answers then change the channel. If they are ranting and raving about the right or the left then change the channel. Think for yourselves people!!!

Never Forget. Where were You on 9.11.2001 and what were you doing? What were you thinking? How has 9.11.2001 impacted your life?
