Dear stupid terrorist,
This will be my one and only acknowledgement of you.
You probably think that you got away with something yesterday--that you sent the world into chaos. But you didn't. What your act of terrorism did, is to unite a people--to allow our nation to rise above their circumstance and truly help others.
Over and over, I keep hearing and seeing the words Mr. Rogers gave us--that in every bad situation, we should look for the heroes. And we are. And they are definitely present. And we will continue to do this instead of focus on the destruction. And we will see many whose acts of courage will far outshine and get more media coverage than your selfish little act will.
That's what Americans do. Tragedies like this serve to help us forget our petty politics and band together. They serve to remind us of how strong we are as a nation. They remind us of how much we hate the evil in the world and will battle against it.
So, just like Satan in the garden of Eden, you may be thinking you won--that evil prevailed. But, we know that this IS NOT the end of the story.
Because at the end of the story, God WILL win the war and good will triumph over evil.
