While I understand that most of you have come to expect my posts to revolve around real estate, given the fact that history is in the process of unfolding, I hope you’ll forgive me for diverting to another subject today. Some of you may know that my husband, whom I love and respect more than words can describe, is a combat veteran. Last night President Obama announced the death of Usama Bin Laden and I had the privilege of holding my husband’s hand when he heard the news. Today is a day of celebration for us all. Not a celebration of Bin Laden’s death, but instead a celebration for all the lives he will not have the opportunity soil, the children who will not end up losing parents because of his actions, and the parents who will not have to bury their children before their time. It’s a time to embrace the thousands of Americans who lost loved ones on September 11th, 2001 and in the years since then overseas. Their losses will never be recovered, but at least it is not in vein. Regardless of where you sit on the political spectrum, I hope you’re proud to be an American today.
