This Day in History

I woke up this morning to find out that Osama Bin Laden had been killed by US forces in Pakistan. After the shock of the years of anticipation for this moment wore off, I started thinking about President Obama's place in history.

Did you know that on the same day in 1945, the world found out that Hitler had killed himself in Berlin? A Democrat, Harry S. Truman sat in the Oval Office.

Hitler is Dead - 1945
Osama is Dead - 2011

I hope that his death brings some comfort to those who have lost loved ones to this man's horrific plots against the world. And I hope that it does not renew enthusiasm for those that follow him.
