As I was playing with my nephew last night I noticed something unexpected happening on TV - I grabbed the remote and turned it off mute. As they announced the death of bin Laden, I felt a great sense of relief that he could no longer spread his message of hatred.
Later as I listened to the President speak, I started crying as I was overwhelmed by a sense of gratitude for all those in the armed forces who serve and have served. I'm overwhelmed by the sacrifice of the men and women of the armed forces and the families who have carried on during their long absences. I'm incredibly grateful to them and so very proud of what they do every day.
I echo the President's hope that we can again become united as a country (and a world) - and I hope we can move forward together to a peaceful future.
