The President doing a news conference after midnight is a big deal. When I heard about it, my first thoughts were what new threat are we facing, or what devastation has happened. Then, news organizations began to report the death of Osama Bin Laden.
I still remember vividly the morning of September 11th, 2001, as I’m sure most people do. Sitting in a classroom studying film for an upcoming football game is what I was doing. Suddenly, someone came in and said there had been a plane crash into a tall building in New York City. The first announcement seemed tragic, but not evil. It came off to me like any plane crash. However, when the second plane hit the news channel was turned on, and we began to realize that this was not some accident, but a dileberate attack on our countrymen.
