And on this one year anniversary of the death of Osama Bin Laden, it's good to know that, regardless of your feelings about his execution (and I have already publicly expressed mine), and no matter what your political persuasion, and regardless of who should or shouldn't get the credit for it, the good news is that we don't have to dread seeing the latest video of him on tonight's news, overshadowing the joy of the rebuilt tower.
Whatever you feel about it, the fact is he's gone.
And the tower is back.
I love my country, and today I'm feeling patriotic. I love New York, and look forward to the day I can stand on top of the World Trade Center again.
But more than that, I'm feeling very encouraged by the symbolism of the rebuilt tower.
It makes me think of the promise that "your latter shall be greater than your former".
It's possible to survive.
It's possible to rebuild.
It's possible to be fully restored.
God bless America...and thank God for the promise of getting back up after a fall.
All things are possible.
