So far 2011 has been a year of breakneck change and unpredictably and we just started the month of May! No doubt there’s much more to come.
Every time I turn around another formerly unlikely or downright impossible thing takes place.
The people of Egypt were victorious.
The people of Libya are defiant and persistent in the face of the ultimate bad actor, who just doesn’t know when to exit the stage…
The people of Japan showed us how to be brave and resilient in the face of the unthinkable and now this, bin Laden is finally gone.
I was falling asleep with my radio on when I heard someone casually say bin Laden was dead. I thought it was a false alarm and dismissed the radio announcement as a wishful rumor the morning would expose as a lie.
I fell asleep. A little later my husband woke me up and told me the news was true.
I was so relieved.
So, in an unpredictable world that offers shocking, rocking and gawking surprises around every turn—I will predict this: (Drum roll)
Ladies and gentlemen brace yourselves, we are about to be inundated with SEAL Team Six movies, books, television shows, tee shirts, special edition custom car parts and anything else you can think of that can be associated with SEAL Team Six.
And why not? These guys are total heroes, along with all the supporting professionals who stood behind the SEALs and made the mission possible.
SEAL Team Six is this generation’s astronauts, rock stars, and avenging angels rolled into one and we may never know their faces or names. If anonymity can help protect them and ease their return to normal lives in the future, perhaps that’s how it needs to be.
But in my heart of hearts I do hope a day will come when their names and faces can be publicly known and honored. I thank them for taking right action and showing restraint.
I’ll end this by saying I also predict quite a few SEAL Team Six romance eBooks are already well underway and a few of those eBooks will be for sale before the end of June. Anyone want to bet me a dollar?
