Some Resolution Has Been Found

I remember that day, almost a decade ago. I was 17-years-old and sitting in my third period high school government class when an annoucement came over the loud speaker saying something about a plane flying into one of the Twin Towers. A few minutes later, another annoucement was made saying a second plane had hit.

In the 1950’s, the Baby Boomers were told to cower under their school desks in case a nuclear bomb exploded. Gen Y had our own generational traumas, including two of our country’s beacons destroyed and two wars that are yet unresolved.

Tonight, President Obama announced that Osama bin Laden had been killed. Even though both wars have not yet ended and our country is still climbing out of a shattered economical downfall, there is a bit of peace that falls upon the nation.
