大侠行天下日记 我见我闻我思 06/01
回顾二次大战以来，我们以世界警察之姿态，在全球各地掀起战争，无论在亚洲、中东 、美洲 及中南美洲后院，结果是枪桿子未能解决世界争端。
Honoring Our Fallen Service Members
President Biden went to Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day to honor those who died serving in the military and urged Americans to strengthen and protect the nation’s democracy.
Biden said, “Democracy itself is in peril here at home and around the world. What we do now and how we honor the memory of the fallen will determine whether or not democracy will long endure.”
The president said, “We owe the honored dead a debt we can never fully repay.”
On this Memorial Day the U.S. also decided to fully withdraw from Afghanistan. According to the Department of Defense we lost a total of 2,312 service members there. This number does not include all of the lives lost at home from service-related illnesses and suicides.
When we review all of the wars we have participated in over the last seventy years, including in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and South America we have lost so many lives and spent billions of dollars on these wars. We have witnessed over this time so many people at home who have suffered and lost their loved ones.
On this day, especially on Memorial Day, our nation needs to rethink about the future of America and the rest of the world. We really need peace and not war.
In this coronavirus pandemic we have now lost more than six hundred thousand lives. The world is in a serious crisis. As human beings we need to help each other. We need to stop these senseless wars.
