Ground Zero Crowd....

This is an amazing video of the crowd that gathered near Ground Zero after the news reported that Osama bin Laden was indeed dead. Lead by men in uniform, the crowd recites the Pledge of Allegiance. Very moving.

it was reported that the military respected Muslim tradition of burying the body within 24 hours after death, and buried bin Laden at sea. Although bin Laden was a terrorist who killed many people, it is testament to our soldiers in the military of the United States of America, who not only tirelessly persevered in capturing this man but that they still did the honorable thing and buried bin Laden with respect.

God bless all those who serve in the military, you are beloved and noble.

Sister, a moving tribute indeed; I heard your broadcast on Catholic radio the other day and wonder if I could ask you a question about your broadcast. My apologies for hijacking this thread, but I can't find your contact info.
