King Bhumibol leaves behind a grateful nation

King Bhumibol leaves behind a grateful nation

 

THITINAN PONGSUDHIRAK

 

(CNN)The passing of King Bhumibol Adulyadej brings to a close a defining chapter in Thailand. During his seven-decade rule, the monarch presided over Thailand's climb from a village backwater to a modern nation.

His glorious reign was enabled by conditions and circumstances uniquely suited to his leadership. He has left behind a grieving and grateful nation that must now chart its own path into an uncertain and unknown future.
