Now the Real Work Begins
Like so many people around the world, I have been watching the inauguration of President Barack Obama. Everyone is talking about it, so I will be brief and simply say that now the real work begins. The world is watching, and I certainly hope we can all live up to the great promises that have been made. If history has taught me anything, it is that promises are hard to keep. The Vietnam War ended in the 70s but the Montagnards still need our support. I sincerely hope we do not leave Iraq the same way we left Vietnam. The real work begins today. Let's get to it.
