Usama bin Muhammad bin Awad bin Ladin (a.k.a. Usama bin Ladin)

Dear Mr. Ladin,

I am writing this letter to you to thank you, not for your UNHOLY war against everything I hold dear, and would gladly fight and die to protect, but for your contribution to the change that has taken place since your failed attempt at terrorism on Sept. 11, 2001.

Yes, the buildings fell. Yes, the planes came down, and lives were lost. Your terrorism plans still failed. I am not afraid.

God is still in control of the Universe, and you have merely tried to lead the Islamic peoples to follow, not Allah, but a very different god… that will ultimately end in their rejection of all that is holy and good in the Koran. You, and your thugs have not served Allah, the God of ISLAM.

In the long term, buildings fall, planes come down, and people die. All that you changed was the timing. All the resources of mankind can be applied to preserve the wonders of the world, but they will still disintegrate, and fall to dust, just as the sands are eroding the great monuments in the desert. Your efforts to effect a change in the world are pitiful at best.

While the families mourn and the nations cope with the shock of these acts of terrorism, we have all changed. This change, this added resolve, and our renewed belief in freedom and justice will not change, but will be passed on from one generation to another.

God Bless America!

There are many positive changes both personal and global:
• Our renewed spirit of pride in America and all that is good in the world. Ask your US relatives why they choose to live here if you need an explanation…
• The economic re-valuation post 9-11. The economies of the free world have experienced a needed abatement of inflationary practices.
• Increased desire to purchase alternative energy sources. You helped change our direction in this. Lets see you try to eat your oil.
• The recognition by the Iraqi peoples that Saddam Hussein was just a thug like you, but too ashamed to stand up and fight for what he believed in and taught. We pulled him out of his hole, and we will do the same for you unless you die first.
• The growing new opportunities following the 9-11 attack. Personally, I no longer have to carry a pager 24x7, and have published my second book. I hadn’t had time to finish writing it before.
• Improved communication in our government. Where before the various agencies didn’t share information very well, now they are working towards a unified solid communication network so it will be easier to find your thugs.
• Renewed faith in God and His son, Christ Jesus. Trust me, you’ll meet Him someday soon. “Every knee shall bow, every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.”

Happy Easter to all.

Well now, it's been nearly a week and no blogging... kind of sounds like an Irish dance

"And now, the Kilkarney county Bloggers - dancing to Mrs. Murphy's lazy dog slept under the porch last Thursday" All the Irish musicians strike up the same tune which goes on about forever all sounding the same, but a little different here and there. Surprisingly enough, they all end at the same time too.

Designed a Celtic Knot Tatted Ladybug, a new Celtic Cross, linked chain of rings flower, and started working on the center for my RR doily. Creative city!

Thursday morning... Need to get my office organized, and that is going to take a couple of days. Then I need to work on my patterns database. I create new designs faster than I can catalog them. Maybe that's because I'd rather be designing new patterns than keeping them all documented and organized. I guess it comes down to self discipline, and I'd rather be self indulgent and just tat. Time to stop and get things done that need to be done. Then I can tat next week.

PPOV: Thomas and I went to see the movie, The Passion of Christ, last night. That's the kind of thing we don't like to think about. Easter is about bunnies, soft and cuddly, and about coloring eggs, and candy - not about blood and torture. At least that's what we are led to believe as children in this country. It is a happy day.

Well it is a happy day, if you look at the deeper meaning. The WORD of God, who created light by just speaking, and who created everything we see and know - defeated death by dying the most horrible and torturous death known to man. The movie forever changes how I look at "Power in the Blood". Thirty nine lashes. One short of a death sentence. Something to think about...
