Journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee are home - thanks mostly in part to the journey President Bill Clinton made to North Korea to meet with the leader Kim Jong Il. You can read more about the home coming here.
Regardless of which political preference, during a time like this we must be thankful to our President, Secretary of State, Al Gore, and especially President Clinton for their efforts to free these two women who it seemed were doomed to a life of hard work and solitude in a foreign country.
Their arrival on American soil in Burbank, California, via a private jet provided by an American businessman to President Clinton was followed by all the news networks this morning. We were able to experience the young ladies first steps back on American soil and share their tears as they were greeted by their family. It was truly a rewarding event.
Thank you to our administration for all you did for the safe return for these two young female journalists. Also, appreciation to President Clinton and his relationship with the North Korean leader without which this event may not have occurred.
