Thoughts on the death of Osama Bin Laden

I woke up this morning, looked on cell phone and saw this on my twitter timeline.

A screencap of a twitter post from Jason Guy, WESH 2 News anchor about the death of Al-Queda leader Osama bin Laden.

I recall being a senior attending Murphy High School when 9/11 occurred. That day I remember walking around in a stunned state of awareness, shock, sadness, anger, and silence. The next few days on the Murphy High campus, there was this sense of patriotism and love for one another as I’m sure the rest of the United States did. Even at  our high school graduation our principal at the time, Mr. Doug Estle, made note on how our senior class seemed to become closer despite such a tragic event.

Flash forward to November 24,2004 Lance Cpl. Bradley Faircloth a member of the 2002 senior class of Murphy High dies while serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
His last wish was to have our senior project which was this

I just wonder what was the reaction on the Murphy High School campus upon hearing this news of Osama bin Laden’s death.
We always have to give thanks to our government administration and our men and women that serve for our freedom each day. Also we have to remember that the war on terrorism is not over yet and there is still work that has to be completed. Otherwise I will remain hopeful for our future as always.
