United We Shall Prevail
A Letter To Our Community
Dear Brothers and Sisters --
In the last two months, the Coronavirus has attacked our community and almost totally destroyed our lifestyles. Many of us in the community are small business owners such as restaurants, beauty salons and small shopping centers. And now, because the government wanted us to shut down for an extended time, most of us cannot even pay the rent and survive this sudden change that has turned into such a terrible economic difficulty. Why, in the richest country in the world has this turned into such a total disaster?
Yesterday, the president signed another $484 billion economic stimulus bill to try and help all the small businesses and medical facilities. More than twenty states already announced they would partially open for business. We all hope that on May 1 of next month the pandemic can be controlled and the economy will slowly recover.
Today, I looked at an old college classmate’s photo from our dear friend, Professor L. C. Ma. All of us as young graduate students came to America to look for a better life. Many years later, most of us have become very successful professionals and we have now spent most of our adult lives in this great nation.
Today, as we are facing the most difficult time fighting this invisible enemy, we are confident we can win and prevail.
May God bless our Nation. America keep strong!
