Despite the impact and magnitude of the bin Laden mission, Adams story stands on its own. Throughout his life he inspired scores of people, and his story has continued to change the lives of manyincluding mine. Hes reminded me to appreciate every moment with my family, to be goofy rather than grumpy, to get back up no matter how hard I might get slapped down, to sometimes buy my children a cupcake when I pick up coffee in the morning but to call it a muffin because, as Adam would tell Savannah, as long as you call them muffins, theyre okay to eat for breakfast. And though I hadnt opened a Bible in more than twenty-five years, his faith encouraged me to question my own questioning about religion.
