Ground Zero

I awoke this morning in NYC to the news that while I slept, there were celebrations just a block away at Ground Zero.  Osama bin Laden had been killed in an intense firefight in a daring raid, by US Navy Seals at his fortified hideout in Pakistan.  He was the world's most wanted man, and the mastermind behind the horrific 9/11 attacks (via yahoo news).

His death will not bring back the lives of those who died as a result of those attacks, but maybe it will allow a little closure and healing for those left behind.  In memory of that day, I walked to Ground Zero and paid my respect to those that died in the attacks, and the brave heroes that died trying to rescue victims.
