As we close the year 2009 and a decade that has in many ways not been kind, we can only hope for a better and brighter future.
Our nation has been devastated by tragedy, disaster, war and turmoil for the greatest portion of the past 10 years.
We have witnessed a terrorist attack in one of our most prominent cities that claimed thousands of lives, watched as warriors returned from battles in distant desert lands, some returning in coffins and many others with lost limbs and other impairments; and we continue to struggle with an ailing economy that began to erode some three years ago.
These indeed are challenging times.
As Americans we must keep the faith. We must press ahead and we must deal with the trials and tribulations of this time.
We can only hope that there are better times ahead.
We at The Wilson Post wish for you the very best in 2010. Please be safe and enjoy this extended holiday weekend.
