The UN Is Changing
The United Nations annual assembly will host from New York virtually because of the coronavirus pandemic. This is the first time in history many heads of state will deliver their speeches through the internet.
The United Nations was born after World War II in order to keep peace in the world. We are so fortunate that in the last seventy years we didn’t have another world war with the exception of the Korean conflict. Today most UN resolutions are powerless simply because many countries will not obey the UN's decisions.
Today we as the richest country in the world have lost 200,000 human lives in this health crisis, but we still insist on withdrawal from the World Health Organization. As the most powerful nation, this is not the right decision at all. Many poor people are suffering in this pandemic. Most people on the globe are just fighting for survival. They all need a helping hand.
Let's hope the UN will lead the world into recovery at such a tragic time as this so the world will be peaceful again.
二次大战结束后才成立的联合国，如今已经逐渐失去了它的功能性， 过去七十多年来， 大会之决议往往只是纸上谈兵。
