Microfiction Muse #6:


Donning patriotic garb
President Obama grabs Gibby
& a press corps minion
leading them toward
the bright light
of a brand new world
sans Osama 


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope and pray that the world is, indeed, a safer place. However, I do not believe that the death of any human being is a cause for celebration. So it was with mixed feelings when I awoke to the news of Osama's death. Although my post pokes a little fun at the relationship between the president, Robert Gibbs, and the White House Press Corps I was proud of our president that day: for his courage to make that tough decision and to follow it through to the end.

I have also been a little weirded out by the intense nationalism after the death of Osama. I'm a little weirded out by the whole decade long multiple wars campaigns, too. It would been a better Mother's Day if we brought them home!
