American Soldier: His Final Rest

The gently sloping hills of Arlington National Cemetery overlook the nation’s capital. From this vantage point, thousands of soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines look across the Potomac River in formation. It is as if in their passing, they continue to look over us and the country because it is their legacy. Here, colonels are among corporals and privates among generals. Alas, they have come together for their final rest. Some served for a short time while others did so for a lifetime. But now, time is irrelevant as we salute them, pay respect to their deeds forever as they have arrived for their final rest.

The Ninety-Somethings

A good friend in Michigan announced the very recent passing of his father.  I never met his father, but the son, my friend, is someone with whom I have spent time discussing things professionally and also passing time as we solved the world’s problems.  The man was in his mid-nineties and a World War II veteran.  A year has passed since I received a similar announcement from another friend in New York.  In the latter case, I had met her father once, and we had dined together, having had a great, enjoyable and memorable evening.

China, Into the Breach

On September 16th, China submitted its official application to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). The irony of this development is that the U.S. had once been the country leading the effort for concluding this agreement when it was known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Agreement.

Damn Asians (Chinese? Japanese? Korean? Indian? Turks? Uzbeks?)!

The recent reports of increased violence against Asian-Americans are troubling, but nothing new. The history of Asians in the U.S. is marked by negative actions against this group by U.S. citizens and the U.S. Government. The current focus on Asian-Americans or Chinese-Americans may be attributed to the Covid-19 pandemic and how politicians have pointed a finger at China for our misery. This, in turn, has seemingly given citizens an excuse for their violence against U.S. citizens of Asian descent.
