Celebrate and Give Thanks For Heroes

Early Monday morning President Obama announced that “a small team of Americans” killed Osama bin Laden in a high risk, high stakes assault on a walled compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.   The  Pentagon later filled in the details.  A 40 man Navy Seal team arrived on site shortly after midnight Monday Morning local time, were involved in  a lengthy fire fight, and completed the operation in less than an hour.  One helicopter was lost but the Americans suffered no injuries or deaths.

We who are safe at home  recall the words of Winston Churchill, repeated and memorialized by Orson Wells:

We sleep soundly in our beds at night because rough men stand ready to do violence on our behalf.
