Twenty One

"What am I if not ridiculous?"

I got flowers.

And they're even prettier in real life.
Believe me, I'd know. This is just a phone-shot.

I'm celebrating.

America, America...

Osama bin Laden.
Here's how people are "celebrating".
Yes, he was an awful, awful, horrible terrorist.
Yes, it's a huge deal that he's gone.
Yes, I'm just as relieved as you.
Yes, I'm completely and absolutely grateful for our brave troops who have fought for us.
But must we stoop so low?

I'd like to think America has more class than this.
I'd like to think that we're above this.
That we're better than this.
Wouldn't you?
And frankly, I'm more than a little disgusted and ashamed that Americans act like this.

We are not petty.
We are not small.
We are proud.
We have honor.

And we are better than this.

I'm proud to be American.
And I'm certainly relieved that bin Laden is finally gone from this world.
But I'm not proud of this exhibition.

Stand taller. Show more poise. Have more dignity.
Prov. 24:17-18 "Do not gloat when your enemy fails; when he stumbles do not let your heart rejoice, lest the Lord see it and it displease Him..."
God bless America.
