That doesn't make it okay... but that's okay.

I know full well, the prices we must pay to be free.

I also know my husband would go to the ends of this Earth, not just for me but, for each and every one of you and I love him for that.

I go to bed every night and wake up every morning knowing someone, somewhere is looking out for me somehow.

It's comforting.

This morning, as I drove my girls to daycare, breaking news took precedent over Taylor Swift and I found myself explaining who Osama bin Laden was to my almost third grader.

Her take on this entire situation?

"So they just killed him?"


I tried to explain why they 'just killed him' as she so eloquently stated.

"That doesn't make it okay.  You can't go around killing people even if they killed someone else."

And she shook her head in disgust and disappointment.

My take on this situation?

I can take a deep breath, I do believe it's all sinking in.  She may not understand the intricacies of war (I'm not sure I do) but she knows how to treat people and that's what counts.

I know full well, the prices we must pay to be free and I'm thankful I will never have to be in such a situation myself.

Thank you to everyone who is somewhere looking out for me somehow.  It means a lot.
