One day after U.S. Navy Seals killed Osama Bin Laden, do you feel safer?

I have to admit, when I first found out he was dead, I was a little scared. What will happen now, I thought. Retaliation? I was worried for my children.

But, as time goes on, I feel more grateful to the brave seaman who executed precisely the surprise attack and murder of the 9-11 mastermind.

I'm glad he's dead.

While there are surely more evil men in this world, one less is always better.

It also renews your faith in the U.S. Intelligence Community and in our country's leaders.

Our success in this mission is a huge victory for President Obama and his staff who showed they had the skill and courage to make it happen.

It also reminds the international community that we are still a superpower with the ability to right wrongs, no matter how long it takes.

Another reason to be a proud American, living in the greatest country in the world.
