Mission Accomplished

Yesterday marked the anniversary of Bush's now infamous speech underneath the "Mission Accomplished" banner. How many thousands of soldiers and Iraqi's have died since that day? It is an anniversary ripe for the picking for comedians and critics of the president alike.

Then, how many people years ago said, "Mission Accomplished" as well. They surveyed the scene saw that Jesus had died and was buried. "Mission Accomplished" Maybe not in the way they expected. Then there were the disciples that pointed to the fact that Jesus had then risen from the grave, defeating death all together, so they probably wanted to say, "Mission Accomplished." I guess they were correct... to a certain extent. Still how many have died since that day without knowing or believing the Good News of Jesus Christ? Perhaps like our military in Iraq we as Christian's still have some work to do.
