Real You: Celebration

As I watch the news tonight of Osama Bin Laden's demise, I'm struck by the power of this historic moment. It's almost if tonight we won a war. It's been such a long time since we've all come together to celebrate. As Americans. United. It's awe inspiring, watching it all unfold.

I'm proud of our country, of our guts and perserverance. Of the bravery of our armed forces, and the heroes of 9/11.

It seems so trivial, at this moment, to be celebrating my debut novel's launch. But I am. It's a warm and special feeling and now that feeling is joining in the spirit of positive thoughts and emotions filling our country tonight.
