At long last, America's, and indeed the world's, Public Enemy No. 1 is DEAD.  Osama bin Laden is DEAD.   

I lost four friends that day.  Clem F., Mary C., Paul M., and Joseph V., always in my prayers.

God bless our troops, God bless the USA!!


  1. For sure...I will never forget that morning..never!

  2. Dear Barbara,
    We were living in a little town called Hastings on the Hudson back in 2011 (Westchester) and from the park on the river you could see the smoke from the towers...
    Unfortunately, the crazy mindset has not died with Osama bin Laden... there is a spirit behind this.
    A lot of people in the towers lived in Staten Island.
    Un abbraccio forte,

  3. Truly a horrible day, so sorry to hear about your friends.

  4. I remember every detail about that day. I'm sorry for the loss of your friends. I really didn't think this day would ever come.

  5. It's a day I'll never forget.

    I am so sorry that what to me was a horrible day "from a distance" was very PERSONAL to you.
    I agree that the capture of this evil man is a reason to be so thanful.

    We got the head. Now, let's get the snake!!

  6. Amen! We lost dear friends that day too, and children of friends. Makes you wonder how he was living in luxury for 5 years and next to a military complex? I will never forget the railroad station days later with all the cars there, the owners having been killed.

  7. My Dear American Friend, Barbara

    I also remember the day clearly!!!

    When I saw my husband watching the news after I finished my teaching job at that night, I thought he was enjoying the movie.

    God,the seen looked like from the action movie.
    May your friends rest in peace!!!

    Deeply, deeply hope the capture of the death of that EVIL man doesn't trigger retaliatory action.

  8. I am so sorry you lost friends to that evil. I think that day and the agonizing weeks that followed are times none of us will ever forget. We as a nation lost so much. I was home alone. My husband had already left for work. When I realized what was going on, I drove clear across town to a friend's house to sit on her Mom's bed and watch what was unfolding. We were like 3 little girls sitting there, just dumbstruck. Like Orchid said, I hope there is no retaliatory action that results in the lost lives of more innocents.
