God Bless the U.S.A.

Well, I had thought this week was going to end with a BORING Blog Post, talking about how lame my week has been (studying, sleeping, eating, repeat...well, maybe a little more eating)...but boy was I surprised.  This evening, as I was finishing some Property Exam Prep., I got a News Alert that President Obama would be holding a Press Conference, but it didn't say what it was about.  Due to the abnormal nature of the Press Conference, I was pretty sure that it would be some big news...little did I know HOW big!  Ding dong, the witch is dead...Osama Bin Laden was killed by a U.S. air strike!  I first found out via Twitter (before any news sources actually reported it) and then, to my pleasant surprise, had it confirmed by the President.  It truly was a moment in time I can say I will honestly never forget!  This all started back with September 11th, 2001, and it is such a tribute to our country, our leaders, and our soldiers to have it end like this...and I truly can say I'm PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!!!

Now, while I do have exams, History trumped tonight and, after the announcement, Seth, Honey, and I hopped in the car and headed down to the White House to be a part of it all...so I will let the pictures and videos tell the rest of the story, but until til the next time, God Bless you all and GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

People starting to gather in downtown D.C.

People celebrating outside the White House.

So many people came together so quickly!

So I know you guys are reading your emails right now but FYI- your blog is acting funky. I can see a new post in the dashboard but when I click on it it says your blog doesn't exist!?!? (sad times).
Anyway, hope you're having fun and will come home and fix your blog and post lots of pics!
Love you!
