Secretary Chao And Dr. Fauci’s Praise And Worry
The International Leadership Foundation hosted the 2020 ILF Virtual Leadership & Business Conference last Saturday. The founder of ILF, Chiling Tong invited Elaine L. Chao, U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, Director of the NIAID, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, U.S. Senator Tim Scott and U.S. Representative Grace Meng to deliver speeches.
All of them praised the many contributions that Asian Americans have made to our society. As Dr. Fauci said, we have so many Asian American medical personnel standing on the front line fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
Today our society has just been turned upside down because of this horrible virus. Asian Americans have become scapegoats and anti-Asian and anti-Chinese sentiment is brewing in our community.
Just this past weekend, anti-government demonstrations were held in Austin, Portland and Oakland. Several people were injured and one protester in Austin was killed. Federal officers and local police moved in and clashed with the demonstrators.
We are so angry and sad to witness the nation just going out of control. And we still don’t see any immediate measures being made to calm the pandemic.
There are less than 100 days until the presidential election. All of us need to take action to rescue ourselves and the nation.
由董繼玲女士在首都華盛頓發起成立的國際領袖基金會今天中午舉行了2020年領袖及商業視訊會議，邀請了交通部部長趙小蘭，國家傳染疾病專家福其博士， 參議員盧比歐，參議員斯科特及華裔國會議員孟江文等分別在視訊大會上發表演說 並共同表彰亞裔對美國社會之巨大貢獻。
可是今天我們的社會已經亂了套，許多政客在疫情猖獗時期，成爲在政治上的操作籌碼，全國國民産生了仇視亞華裔社區之情況，造成社會之不安，週末在德州奧斯丁、波特蘭、 奧克蘭等大城市先後有大型示威 ，並出了人命， 聯邦政府執意要以軍隊來鎮壓示威群衆， 豈是安撫民憤之方法。
我們要非常悲憤而極度憂慮的指出， 全國已處于內外交困之極大危機，不論是在內政外交，執政者如果只爲一已之私 ，將會造成無法彌補的遺憾和後果， 今天是我們自救也是救人之時刻了。
