a day in history

(note: for the sake of history, I wanted to write this. Please do not feel obligated to read)

So this morning I woke up. I admit I pressed the snooze button and went back to sleep for 30 minutes. I dont remember turning the TV off last night. I usually keep it on when Im alone in hotel rooms, it helps me fall asleep. This trip is no different. Except that it is the first time I have ever been to New York. Ive dreamed about coming here since I was little. I remember telling my parents I would become a world famous fashion designer and that I would live in the trendiest part of New York City. Of course this didnt happen, and its taken me 25years to actually come to the city, not even for pleasure but for work.
So, after getting out of the bed, I turned the TV back on, only to be greeted with some of the greatest news I have every heard.
So I think I would have to agree with the first newspaper cover I passed during the walk to work as well.
 And I feel relief that the FBI's most wanted list has one less person on it.
I do have to admit, although I am extremely greatful for our soldiers and our country, this is but one emotion I am feeling right now. I am without a doubt ecstatic that this evil man is no longer living, but I cant help but feel a little scared of retaliation. And even more scared of actually being in NY right now. And a somewhat controversial about the politics that will be influenced by this. And although I had my cousin give me the express tour of NY yesterday, I feel I owe it to myself to visit the one place we didnt have time to go, before i leave on Wednesday: Ground Zero.
