Too few understand that the job of a soldier is to protect human life.
They stand tall so that we may walk free. They show humanity in places where there is none.
It is our job to protect their memories.

"Justice has been done," Obama said.
"I congratulated him and the men and women of our military and intelligence communities who devoted their lives to this mission. They have our everlasting gratitude," the former president said in a statement. "The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done."
And this is the way it gets done.
Unbroken over time and space.

I read the quibbling on facebook and in the comments sections. The people who fight for us don't care who gave the orders, they just know it is the right thing to do. Osama Bin Laden hated us all, sought to kill us all, indiscriminately. And our soldiers protect us all, indiscriminately. Our leaders are required to do the same. And we each bear the same burden for one another.
