that which we cannot ignore

It is hard to not acknowledge the news of the past 24 hrs — first thing this morning, all over the internet, I was greeted by news (and opinions) on the death of Osama bin Laden.  This news has landed in my belly, on my heart, and I haven’t yet begun to dig through it all to articulate much of anything.  I don’t want to ignore the enormity of this, and  I do feel that others have beautiful thoughts to share, so I will point you in a few directions.
