Hope

President Barack Obama,

I was encouraged earlier this month to see an article about your proposed solution to closing the military prison on the Guantanamo Bay naval base.

I wasn’t too encouraged.

There were just as many commentators who believe as I do that if you really wanted to close the military prison on Guantanamo Bay; you would have done so already.

I continue to hope along with many others, that our United States will someday practice those high ideals about which we constantly rhapsodize in our political rhetoric.

You could pardon the men we have tortured, and imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay.

You could do it today. These men could be released 30 days later.
