I am conflicted about this. Of course I am happy that she is safe & happy. And yes, I am sure this is a result of us being there. But can I say to the mother or father of one of our dead soldiers, “It was worth it”? I look into the eyes of my children & think, “Is another human being’s freedom worth their lives?” I can’t say “Yes,” - but I don’t want to say “No.” And, if the answer is, “Yes, this is what the US should stand for in the world,” how do we justify only being in Afghanistan? Yes, of course I am happy for this girl. But I don’t know where this is all leading - & what will happen once we leave.
