We Are In A National Crisis Again
Tens of millions of confirmed cases of the coronavirus have been reported all over the world today. Twenty-five percent of the world’s cases are in the U.S. We now have more than 2.5 million cases and 125,000 deaths. Such terrible figures really prove that we lack the ability to fight this crisis.
Today, America is facing three major issues: the Coronavirus and public health, the economy and the radical problem. Whether we should even wear masks under the current pandemic conditions in the nation cannot be agreed on. And at the federal, local and state levels of government, because of different ideologies, there are no firm agreements on the many issues we are facing in the crisis. There is no leadership in command as a central power. Sadly, this is the situation with the coronavirus.
Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar has warned that our time was running out for the U.S. to curb the spread of coronavirus as cases rise cross the country, particularly in the west and south.
We were very sad to learn that our dear friend, the mayor of the City of Stafford, Leonard Scarcella, passed away last night. He was a very good friend of the Asian community. He also was the longest serving mayor in U.S. history for 49 years. His legacy will be remembered by us.
In this crisis time, we have also learned that Harris County Judge Linda Hidalgo has been confirmed with the coronavirus. We admire her leadership at this critical time and we wish her all the best.
As a nation, we are facing this unprecedented challenge. It is everybody’s responsibility to carry out your duties and to contribute however you can from your position as a citizen. Let’s all team up to rescue our country.
