The death of Colin Powell came as a rude shock to the United States of America where he last served as the secretary of state.
However, secretary Colin Powell dedicated his life to defending the US nation.
General Colin Powell as National Security Advisor, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Secretary of State, he was an independent thinker and a barrier breaker who inspired leaders in the US military and throughout the nation.
However, secretary Powell served his nation with courage, unwavering in his belief in its principles and its promise.
Also known as the son of immigrants, Secretary Powell rose through the ranks of the United States Army. He was a decorated veteran and a devoted patriot.
VP KAMALA HARRIS frowned at his death saying that she last saw and spoke with Secretary Powell in July, at a dinner honoring German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
In her words, “I was reminded then how he always showed the world the best of who we are. He upheld the highest standards, representing our nation with dignity, grace, and strength.
“The legacy that he leaves behind—on America’s national security and on the leaders he mentored can be seen every day across our nation and the world.
“Douglas and I send our deepest condolences to Secretary Powell’s wife, Alma Powell, and their children and grandchildren” VP KAMALA HARRIS posted.
