大侠行天下日记 我见我闻我思 12/10
国事如麻， 百废待举，俗语说， 家和万事兴 ，在我们这个国家的大家庭中正逐渐表现出领导者之气度和决心。
First African-American Secretary of Defense
President-elect Biden appointed the first black man, retired General Lloyd J. Austin III, as the Secretary of Defense. Austin rose to the highest military role in spite of the largely white leadership in the ranks.
General Austin was the director of the Joint Staff, one of the most powerful behind the
scenes positions in the military.
In September 2010 at a ceremony at the Al-Faw palace in Baghdad attended by then Vice President Biden, General Austin was commanding general in Iraq. It was at this time they started a relationship.
In the Obama administration, General Austin was appointed head of the United States Central Command--the country’s premier military command and the one that fights the war in the Middle East.
We are so glad that President-elect Biden is keeping his promise to name all color and ethnic groups to the top positions.
Today President Trump still doesn’t want to admit that he has lost the election. The legal fight for the election still continues to the U.S. Supreme Court while people around the world still can’t understand why the democratic system didn’t function very well this time.
As an old saying goes, “If a family is in harmony, everything will be successful.”
For America today, we really don’t see that happening.
