It was one year ago the Seal Team 6 received orders from the President to raid the compound of Osama Bin Ladin. It was a day of victory and celebration. I wrote and spoke of the over zealousness of our response as a nation. A terrorist died. That was good and should have happened.
But for us to party in the streets made us look like something I had not seen in America before. This was not the end of a war. It was not troops coming home after a surrender. This was the killing of a criminal. I just think we are better than that.
Today I am reminded young men and women are in harms way. They are there and they protect us. Thank God for them. Say thank you! It is just fine to shake their hand or give a hug. Be grateful. This is America. Be proud but walk with humility.
