Brief Relief

News of his death brought tears to my eyes in that moment of remembrance.
A moment of brief relief. 
And now, the relief is over as the possibility of heightened attacks looms over US. 

The terror I felt that day.
The fear for the future of my children.
The reality that life as we knew it in America would change forever.
I take a whole lot less for granted.

A moment of brief relief.
Not happy.
Guilty for that brief relief.
The crushing weight of those memories.
Staring at the TV screen.

Knowing the journey continues.
It's over now.
That moment.
Brief Relief.
