An important accomplishment worth celebrating

It’s hard to believe the moment has FINALLY arrived, but it is upon us. Eight and a half years after George Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” speech, President Obama will come to North Carolina today to commemmorate the end of the war in Iraq.

It is, of course, a bittersweet occasion given the horrific loss of life and treasure and mostly non-existent improvements to the world’s political environment that have resulted from the war. America remains mired in Afghanistan.

But, for this one day, let’s be thankful for this important accomplishment and for all the military families around our state who will get to hug and hold their loved ones over the holidays and in the New Year.

Thank you, Mr. President, for delivering on your promise to make this day come to pass.
