It has taken me over three weeks to try and post this article. Let's just say my internet connectivity has taken a down-turn. But eneough of my whining. There is something much more important to talk about.
A couple of weeks ago was the Afghan New Year, known here as Nowruz. It is looked upon as a time of rejoice, rebirth, and making amends for the wrongs you have done over the past year.
As I sat there thinking about that, and thinking specifically about Afghanistan, I came to a realization. For the first time in many years this is truly a new beginning for their country. They are a country that has been at war for generations. Now, even though the war is far from over, it is a new beginning.
You see, they are the ones that are in charge of their destiny. They are the ones making many large and heavy sacrifices. The people are standing more and more behind the security forces, and the Afghan Security Forces are in the lead.
Afghanistan is on the right path, and it truly was a very special Nowruz here.
A very Happy New Year (even if belated) to all of you and especially to my Afghan brothers in arms. Nowruz Mubarak.
God Bless America
