Letter To The Editor: Note On Trump’s UNGA Address

Tuesday I read a transcript of and Guardian article on President Trump’s address to the UN General Assembly with sadness and disbelief. The book title, Cry the Beloved Country, comes to mind; also the quote of Founding Father Benjamin Franklin, “there never was a good war, or a bad peace...”
When will we ever learn, when will we ever learn?
the dead have seen the end of war” (Plato)
I wish to add President John Quincy Adams definition of a leader:
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader.
Someone who says, “the US may have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea,” surely fails Adams’ wise definition. By the way, North Korea has a population of almost 26 million, a majority of who are very poor.
